WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – A Wichita State University student-teacher has been charged with unlawful sexual relations with a student at Heights High School.
Wichita media outlets report 23-year-old Katelynn R. Moore was arrested Tuesday, but has been released on bond. Wichita school district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said Wednesday that the alleged incident did not occur at the high school, but was reported there.
Authorities say the incident happened in February and that the suspect unlawfully engaged in “consensual sexual intercourse, lewd fondling or touching, or sodomy” with a student.
According to Wichita State University spokesman Joe Kleinsasser, Moore was a music education student at the school and no longer has student-teacher status.
The newspaper could not reach Moore for comment.
