An 18-year-old Imbler man will be under the continuous supervision of his parents after he was charged with three counts of first-degree rape, unlawful sexual penetration, two counts of sex abuse and three counts of third-degree sex abuse.

Jordan Teeter, who will be a high school senior this fall, appeared in front of presiding Judge Barbara Haslinger Monday during a hearing at the Union County Courthouse. During the hearing, Teeter’s attorney, Bob Moon, and Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General Kristen Hoffmeyer made some amendments to his release agreement.

Teeter was arrested May 19, according to court records, and detained at the Walla Walla Detention Center. His mother posted $15,000 bail and he was released to his parents. Since that time, a total of five young women came forward alleging sex abuse.

Teeter was attending Imbler High School when the sex abuse allegations began but later transferred to La Grande High School. He transferred to La Grande High School because of those allegations, according to Moon.

Police assert the crimes occurred in August, September and December 2016 and January and March 2017, according to court records.
