Greenwood (Ind.) Community High School’s girls golf coach has resigned after police caught him having sex with a 17-year-old female student in a parked vehicle, according to Indianapolis police.
Tim Guilfoy, 36, was arrested late Friday on two preliminary charges of child seduction, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will make a final decision on the charges.
Officers investigating a suspicious vehicle discovered a nude Guilfoy and the girl inside a GMC Sierra pickup parked in the 8800 block of South Madison Avenue about midnight Friday, Lt. Christopher Bailey said in a statement.
“When asked what they were doing, Guilfoy told the officer they were having sex,” according to Bailey’s statement. “Guilfoy also told officers he was a teacher at Greenwood High School and that the female inside the truck was one of his students.”
Guilfoy resigned from the school corporation on Sunday, Superintendent Kent DeKoninck said today in a written statement.
“Greenwood Community School Corp. officials intend to fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities in their investigation,” DeKoninck said. “The school district will have no further comment at this time.”
Greenwood schools hired Guilfoy in 2000. Guilfoy received his Indiana teaching license in 2000 and is certified to teach English and physical education, according to the Department of Education.
Guilfoy was released from the Marion County Jail on Sunday after posting $7,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear for an initial hearing on Wednesday.
