According to court records filed on Thursday, the Children's Division contacted the Independence Police Department about a sex offense involving "William Chrisman High School staff and a student."

Police talked to the victim's mother, who told police that the student had "told her of sexual conversations and exchanged photos"

A second student told police that, on March 23, she met the defendant in a closed bathroom at William Chrisman High School and she engaged in oral sex with the defendant.  

The school district has released the following statement: 

“When an allegation was reported to a staff member, the district followed protocol and immediately reported this to the Missouri Children’s Division. The district takes student safety very seriously and the accused individual is no longer working for the Independence School District.”
