25-year-old Rylee VanMelkebeke was arrested Friday at the high school for aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He has since resigned as a P.E. and driver’s education teacher along with giving up coaching football, girls’ basketball and girls’ track.

VanMelkebeke is accused of having sexual contact with a victim between 13 and 17 years old. He remains at the La Salle County Jail on $150,000 bond.
