Preliminary hearing set for former teacher charged with having sex with student

June 30, 2010

A former Pleasant Ridge High School teacher, arrested Tuesday morning on charges of having sex with a 17-year-old student, will appear in July in Leavenworth County District Court.

Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said Wednesday the former teacher will have a preliminary hearing July 20 in Leavenworth.

Thompson's office alleges the teacher had consensual sexual intercourse with one of her students between August 2009 and June 2010. She's been charged with three counts of unlawful sexual relations.

She resigned in April from her job at the high school near Easton, according to Associated Press reports.
