Former teacher facing rape, kidnapping charges in Hood River

Posted: Updated:

A former high school teacher in the Columbia River Gorge is accused of raping a woman in Hood River.

Donald McAndie was arrested Nov. 21 and appeared at a bail reduction hearing Tuesday. He is facing charges of kidnapping and rape after the alleged victim said he took her within the city limits, restrained her and then sexually assaulted her.

Hood River police said the woman is in her late 30s.

Police said McAndie was a teacher at Stevenson High School in the 1990s and was investigated on accusations of inappropriate touching and other behavior involving girls in 1991, 1994, 1999 and 2001. No criminal charges were ever filed in those cases.

A Hood River detective said several girls made complaints in 2001, and that McAndie voluntarily resigned from the school that same year. He was a biology teacher and a soccer coach in the area, and police said his wife remains a teacher.

McAndie's bail was reduced Tuesday to $100,000. If he bails out, he is to have no contact with the alleged victim or any women or girls under the age of 21.

He will also be eligible for home electronic monitoring if he's released from jail.

His next court appearance is set for Jan. 14.
