Lt. Bryan Golmitz, spokesman for the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department, said David Robert Freeman (pictured), 38, was arrested by sheriff's detectives as a result of information received in December. Freeman was booked on suspicion of engaging in sex with a minor and oral copulation. He was released on $175,000 bail.

Golmitz said the victim is a female juvenile. Because detectives are still investigating the allegations, Golmitz said he could not discuss details of the case. Once the investigation is completed, he said, it will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office.

Neither Freeman nor Union Mine Principal Tony DeVille could be reached for comment.

Dave Johnson, Union Mine's athletic director, reached by phone, said he was out of town and had just learned of the arrest today. He said Freeman has been at Union Mine since the high school opened in 1999.
