A Yuba City High School teacher accused of inappropriate conduct could lose his job.

The teacher, Jim Whiteaker, is also a Sutter County Supervisor. He was put on leave after being accused of inappropriately touching a student. Whiteaker maintains that he believed two students were fighting and simply tried to break up the fight.

We've reached out to the Yuba City Unified School District, the Sutter County Board of Supervisors and Whiteaker himself. None of our phone calls were returned -- but the Sutter County Board of Supervisors did release a statement saying they're aware of the actions of the school board, but have no further comment at this time.

The heat continues to rise around northern California as we progress through the week, and no real relief from this current heat wave is in sight.
