Kansas high school teacher allegedly had sex with 18-year-old student, Liberal police say

A Kansas high school teacher has resigned amid allegations that she had sex with a student, Liberal police say.

The teacher, a 25-year-old woman, was arrested Sunday after Liberal police investigators determined an incident occurred the day before, Capt. Robert Rogers said in a news release. School administrators had requested that Liberal Police Department officers investigate allegations that a Liberal High School teacher had sexual relations with an 18-year-old student.

The alleged incident occurred Saturday in the 1200 block of West 10th Street.

The county attorney charged Rachel Wrobel with unlawful sexual relations in Seward County District Court on Tuesday in connection to the case, Rogers said. Her bond was set at $50,000.

Police said the teacher has resigned from her position. Wrobel was an English teacher at Liberal High School, the district’s website shows.
