Fairfax High Teacher Charged with Felony


Daniel Kim

Fairfax County police have charged a 29-year-old teacher at Fairfax High with indecent liberties by a custodian (meaning a person in a position of trust). He is Daniel Kim of Oakton, and police say he had an “inappropriate sexual relationship” with a student at the school.

A math teacher, he was in his third year of teaching at Fairfax. Detectives from the Major Crimes Bureau Child Abuse Squad arrested him last Wednesday evening, Nov. 20, at his home.

According to police, the detectives began their investigation into his alleged, illicit actions after a student reportedly disclosed information about unlawful sexual conduct with Kim within the past two months. Victim specialists from the Police Department’s Major Crimes Bureau’s Victim Services Division were then assigned to ensure that the alleged victim is receiving appropriate resources and assistance.

Following his arrest, Kim was suspended from his teaching position and held in the Adult Detention Center without bond. He’s currently scheduled for a preliminary hearing, Feb. 27, 2020, in the county’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
