Parkway South Middle School teacher and coach charged with statutory rape of student

Ronald Smith Jr., a teacher and coach at Parkway South Middle School, is accused of felony statutory rape for his alleged sexual relationship with an underage student.

In a complaint filed Tuesday, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued charges on Smith, 42, of the 2000 block of Painted Leaf Drive in Maryland Heights, for one count of statutory rape, one count of statutory sodomy, and sexual contact with a student by teacher.

Smith is being held on a $150,000, no 10% bond.

A probable cause statement issued by St. Louis County officials said that between May 1, 2017 and November 1, 2017, the defendant had sexual intercourse with the victim, and from August 1, 2015 and December 25, 2015, the defendant sodomized the victim, who was under the age of 17.

Smith also had sexual contact with the Parway South Middle School student from August 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016, according to the statement.

Although there are no other victims who have came forward at this time, the St. Louis County Police Department is asking anyone who believes they may have been victimized by Smith to call 314-615-8693.

School officials said they relieved Smith of his teaching and coaching duties and placed him on administrative leave immediately after they were notified of the allegations Tuesday, before contacting police.

In a letter sent home to parents Tuesday, the principals of both South Middle and South High said Smith passed a background check and did not have any previous instances or allegations of misconduct.

Detectives from the St. Louis County Police Department’s Child Abuse Unit conducted the investigation and presented the case to the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s office where the above charges were issued.
