46 year old Willard Oliver was arrested Sunday and charged with seven counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile. According to Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Detective Michael Primeaux, the Sam Houston High algebra and Option III teacher admitted he was having a in appropriate sexual relationship with a former student he was tutoring at his home. Primeaux says, "Mr. Oliver was a teacher at the high school, Sam Houston High School. That's where they met. He offered to tutor her and as their relationship grew, they went to a sexual relationship."
The alleged sexual relationship came to light Sunday evening when someone saw the two arguing outside on Gilmore Road near Oliver's apartment-- an apartment located about a half mile from the school. It was an anonymous caller who led deputies to Oliver's apartment where they also discovered a small amount of marijuana. Primeaux says, "The sheriff's office was contacted that there was a young girl and Mr. Oliver in an argument. Someone saw him grab her by the arm and throw her in his truck and drive to his apartment."
