Hampshire High School teacher accused of having inappropriate relationship with 14-year-old girl


A Hampshire High School teacher was arrested on Thursday for allegedly having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

The Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office received information about the alleged relationship on Tuesday.

Over the course of the next couple of days, investigators said they found evidence that Timothy Detwiler, 33, of Slanesville, W.Va., had sexual contact with a student in a classroom during the months of February and March.

Police believe that there was only one victim.

Detwiler was charged with two counts of sex abuse by a custodian or guardian. He was arrested at his home without incident, and taken to the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail.

Officers with the Sheriff’s Office Investigation Division said they are forensically examining electronic devices for additional evidence.

Investigators said additional charges are “probable” against Detwiler.
