The legal age of consent in Kansas is 16 years old. That is unless that 16-year-old goes to the same school you teach at. 32-year-old Jeana Fleming, an alternative education teacher at Olathe Northwest High School, has learned this firsthand.
She turned herself in Tuesday and was being held on a count of having unlawful sexual relations with a student until she was released on a $10,000 bond. The bond had originally stood at $100,000, but was lowered because sheâ€™s pregnant and has a 4-year-old child at home.
The now-former teacher, who resigned in the spring and shares custody of her current child, had an affair with the 16-year-old boy in December of 2014. According to a friend of the boy, he became upset when rumors of their elicit liaison started making the rounds at the school. When his parents found out, his parents were furious, according to this friend who describes the boyâ€™s parents as â€˜super strictâ€™.
The baby sheâ€™s now pregnant with is due in early-to-mid-October â€“ placing the conception sometime, ironically enough, in December of 2014.
Her next court date is July 23rd.
