COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. -- A substitute bus driver in the South Lane School District is in the Lane County Jail, accused of misconduct involving a teenage boy, district officials said.

Elizabeth Vanderhoof, 29, has been driving with the district over the past year, officials said.

Court records show she faces charges of first-degree online sexual corruption of a child, third-degree rape and third-degree sodomy.

Vanderhoof has a pre-trial conference scheduled for July 15 at 2:30 p.m.

The district said they are fully cooperating with the ongoing investigation.

“We hope you will not let the alleged misconduct of one person cast a shadow over all of our staff members, who demonstrate their commitment to education and to our students every day,” officials said in a statement on their website.

If you have information, contact Cottage Grove police at 541-942-9145.
