Cambria teacher charged with rape



Walter Vickrey, an instructor at Coast Union High School in Cambria, has been charged with five felonies, including spousal rape, in relation to his Nov. 11 arrest.

On Dec. 9, the District Attorney’s Office formally charged Vickrey with two counts of forcible oral copulation, one count of rape of a spouse by force, inflicting corporal injury, and dissuading a witness—all felonies.

At his Dec. 14 arraignment, Vickrey pleaded not guilty to all five counts, according to Deputy District Attorney Jerret Gran. Vickrey’s attorney, Ilan Funke-Bilu, could not be reached for comment as of press time.

Vickrey remains on $100,000 bail and has been placed on paid administrative leave with Coast Union School District.

He is due back in court for a preliminary hearing Jan. 4.
