Potosi teacher fired over alleged sex with student

See also

An unidentified teacher at Potosi High School was fired after 'she' allegedly had sexual relations with a male student, 17. In the state of Missouri, 17 is considered an adult but I wonder how this will play out in the eyes of the law because the teacher was in a position of authority. The school sent out letters to parents that the teacher was terminated but not why.

"It's very important when we send things home that it contains accuracy and when you're in the middle of an investigation sometimes you don’t have all the details."

--- Potosi Superintendent Randy Davis

The Potosi Police Department is investigating the incident to decide if criminal charges can be filed due to the student's age.
