Lake teacher accused of sex with student in classroom bonds out of jail

TAVARES, Fla. — A Lake County teacher accused of having sex with a student in a classroom bonded out of jail Sunday.

A judge granted Marshal Jungreis, 41, a $25,000 bond and ordered him to not have contact with the victim.

Jungreis is a teacher and the cross-country head coach at East Ridge High School in Clermont.

Deputies said a 17-year-old former student of Jungreis, whom he messaged on an adult website called AdultFriendFinder, told them that they had sex in a portable classroom.

The victim told deputies Jungreis picked her up one night in November, and the two drove to the high school, where the alleged sexual encounter occurred.

Jungreis told deputies they were together that night and met on the website but denied the two had sex.

Kristen Pew, who has a daughter who attends the school, said she was shocked to learn of the arrest.

“You never know who you can trust, and we trust these teachers and these coaches with our kids,” she said.

The school’s website said Jungreis teaches history and serves as the head girls varsity cross-country coach.

It also said he spent nearly a decade at Leesburg High School, where he worked as the head girls track coach.

Jungreis was arrested at his home in Groveland on a charge of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
