An Easton, Kan., high school teacher has been charged with having unlawful sexual relations with a 17-year-old male student.
Shannon Young, 36, of Lansing, was arrested Tuesday 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 Aug. 1, 2009, and June 2, 2010.
Easton Superintendent Charles Coblentz said the district conducted its own investigation into the matter. Young resigned from her position in April.
