HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A Steinbrenner High School teacher is accused of engaging in sexual misconduct with a student. 

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Jason Allgair, 35, faces 30 counts of authority figure engaging in sexual conduct with a student after detectives received an allegation that the teacher had a relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Deputies say from between October 2017 through May 2018, Allgair engaged in sexual acts with the female student both on and off-campus.

“The care and protection of young students is a teacher’s duty.
