Kansas Upholds Ban on Sex Between Teacher, Adult Students

30-year-old choir teacher charged with relationship with 18-year-old


It did not violate a teacher's privacy rights in prosecuting him for having consensual sexual relations with an 18-year-old high school student, the Kansas Court of Appeals ruled.

Charles Edwards, 30, worked as a choir teacher for the Wichita School District.

In March 2010, he had consensual sex with a student, A.C.A., who was 18 at the time. She drove herself to Edwards' home in Sedgwick County, and supplied Edwards with a condom.
