Police investigating report of teacher having sex with student

Authorities are investigating a report that a Wichita Northwest High School teacher had sex with a student who attends the school.

The student is an 18-year-old girl, said Sgt. Amy Osburn of the Exploited and Missing Child Unit. The incident was reported to EMCU on Tuesday, she said.

A Wichita school district spokeswoman said the employee is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, which is district policy.

Investigators will present evidence in the case to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office today or Monday, Osburn said.

Under Kansas law, it is a felony for a teacher to have sex with a student of any age.
