Local substitute teacher charged with sexual misconduct with a minor

Devin Russell Binegar, 24, of 49 Waugh St., Newport, was arrested Monday for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a felony.

Binegar, who had been a substitute in the Frontier Local district for about a year, is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl he met at a party. Binegar and another man arrested Monday may have been frequently attending parties looking for underage girls, according to a release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Shane Dye, 24, of 70 Wilson St., Newport, has been charged with rape and is being accused of having sex with an underage girl he met at a party while she was blacked out, resulting in the birth of a child.

Both incidents allegedly occurred in 2011.
