FREDERICK ANDREW ANGOCO II

Frederick Andrew Angoco II, age 39, was taken into custody on Sept. 3 by the Craven County Sheriff on an outstanding out-of-state warrant on a charge of forcible sodomy.

Angoco was extradited to York County, Virginia on Sept. 17 according to official booking records.

Williamsburg police first received the report about the alleged crime in August. The following month, Angoco was arrested and remanded to the Craven County jail until he was extradited to Virginia in September.

The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office said the alleged crime occurred in their jurisdiction sometime in April of 2019 when Angoco was in the area on a “field trip.” The alleged victim is a 21-year-old man who lives in York County, Virginia.

The charge of forcible sodomy can involve various sexual acts, including fellatio, cunnilingus, anilingus, or anal intercourse. To be considered forcible sodomy, these acts have to happen under threat of force or intimidation, the victim is mentally incapacitated or helpless, or if the victim is a minor child under 13 years old.

According to Virginia statutes, “Forcible sodomy is a felony punishable by confinement in a state correctional facility for life or for any term not less than five years.”

Virginia law also states that if the victim was more than three years younger than the offender, which is the case with Angoco’s victim, the prison sentence is much higher with a possible mandatory minimum of 25 years. Additionally, Virginia law says that if the offender was over 18 at the time of the offense, the mandatory minimum is “confinement for life.”

This is not Angoco’s first arrest. He was also arrested in Havelock on Nov. 10, 2017, on a charge of simple assault.

From 2004-2006, Angoco was employed as a substitute teacher for the Craven County School District. He was hired full-time in 2006 as a music teacher for Arthur Edwards Elementary and was listed as a chorus teacher at Tucker Creek in 2017.

Craven County Public Schools confirms that Angoco was suspended from his position at Tucker Creek Middle School on Aug. 17. The district did not comment on whether the suspension was paid or unpaid.

Records show Angoco has an active N.C. teaching license in the area of K-12 music. His license was issued in July 2019 and, unless revoked, it will expire on June 30, 2024.

Angoco is the 23rd North Carolina teacher arrest tracked by this site in 2020.
