WICHITA — A fired Wichita teacher and recent city council candidate has been charged with sex crimes with a teenage student.
The Wichita Eagle reports that 39-year-old Rodney Wren made a first appearance Monday on three counts of having unlawful sexual relations with a student 16 or older in 2015. At the time, the girl was attending Wichita Collegiate School, where Wren taught debate and forensics.
Police began investigating when the girl reported the allegations last month.
He was terminated when the school learned of his arrest Friday.
