UPDATE (Sept. 30, 2021) - The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office reports it has denied Tyler Andree's request to serve his sentence at home, and he will now serve his sentence in county jail.
(Sept. 29, 2021) - A former Morro Bay High School teacher and swim coach who was convicted of having sex with a student will serve his sentence in home detention.
In July, Tyler Andree was sentenced to 120 days in jail after pleading no contest to having sex with a 17-year-old student and communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a sexual crime.
After his sentencing, Andree reportedly applied for home detention through the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office, was initially denied, appealed, and was then accepted.
On Wednesday, a judge agreed to the home detention.
As part of Andree's plea deal, he will also serve supervised felony probation and must register as a sex offender for the next 20 years.
Andree was arrested in February 2021 following an investigation by the Morro Bay Police Department. Authorities say a school resource officer received an anonymous tip about a sexual relationship between a Morro Bay High School student and a swim coach that had occurred the previous school year.
