Tonasket School Librarian Arrested For Sexual Misconduct With A Student

Posted: Updated:

TONASKET, Wash.- On Tuesday, May 20, 37 year-old Elizabeth Kinkade was arrested for Sexual Misconduct With A Minor First Degree after an investigation that she allegedly had sexual intercourse with an 18 year-old student of Tonasket High School.

The investigation started Monday afternoon after Tonasket police were called to the home Kinkade shared with her husband and kids. Court records show that Kinkade told her husband about the affair with a student, and that it lasted two months. He did not react well, and Kinkade was concerned enough about his behavior to call police.

When police arrived, Kinkade was on her front porch, and already had her resignation papers from Tonasket High School in hand. At the time of the alleged incidents, Kinkade was a librarian for the Tonasket School District.

A Tonasket Police Department spokesman says they are confident there are no other victims nor did any of the incidents occur on school property. That’s one point that Kinkade thought may keep her safe from any legal trouble. Court records show that she told an officer that she thought what she was doing was legal because the student was 18 years old and there were no sexual acts on school property.

Tuesday afternoon Elizabeth Kinkade was booked into the Okanogan County Jail. She made her initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
