Her next appearance in court will be August 15th.


Updated April 24, 2014:  The Jasper County Sheriff's Office says Carrie Njoroge turned herself into the Christian County Sheriff's Office today (Thursday), then bonded out.

According to the Probable Cause, the former Webb City High School choir teacher had a sexual relationship with a male student over a three month period.



Reported April 23, 2014:  The Jasper County Sheriff's Office says a warrant has been issued for a now former Webb City teacher who had a sexual relationship with a student. The sheriff's office says, as of 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, they were not showing that she had been arrested.

According to the Probable Cause, Webb City High School choir teacher Carrie Njoroge had a sexual relationship with a male student over a three month period.

The Webb City School District has released a statement saying they were made aware of misconduct against Njoroge on April 17. She was placed on administrative leave and law enforcement was contacted.

Njoroge resigned from her position on April 18.

"Needless to say the District is both shocked and saddened by these events," Webb City Superintendent Anthony Rossetti says in the release.  "We will continue to work with local authorities to bring resolution and accountability to all involved."
