LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) A 24-year-old southwest Kansas social studies teacher has been charged with sexually exploiting and soliciting a child.
A joint statement by the Liberal police chief and Seward County attorney says Liberal High School teacher Drake Foster was arrested Tuesday and is cooperating with authorities.
The Hutchinson News reports Foster also taught geography and history and coached the boys’ soccer team.
Deputy school superintendent Paul Larkin says Foster has resigned his position. He declined to discuss further details of the case.
Bond has been set at $50,000, and Foster was scheduled to appear in court Dec. 3. A phone message left for his attorney was not returned Thursday.
