Shannon Young was arrested this morning. Young, an English teacher and volleyball coach, allegedly had consensual sexual intercourse with one of her students at Pleasant Ridge High School. Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said the crimes happened between the general time period of Aug. 1, 2009, and June 2, 2010.
Easton Superintendent Charles Coblentz said the district conducted its own investigation into the matter. He declined to discuss when the internal investigation started and what initial disciplinary action, be it paid or unpaid, was initially taken against the teacher. However any disciplinary action would have became largely moot in April when Young resigned from her position.
Young started working for the district in August 2009.
