ATCHISON, Kan. – A Missouri woman has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student in 2012 while she was a high school teacher in the Kansas town of Atchison.
Thirty-five-year-old Shelley Aversman, 35, of Rushville, Missouri, was charged Wednesday in Atchison County with one count of unlawful sexual relations with a student.
The criminal complaint says the Kansas Bureau of Investigation investigated the allegations and took Aversman into custody Wednesday afternoon.
She was released after posting $50,000 bond.
Her attorney, Andrew Werring, says she will make her first appearance Friday.
He said he couldn’t comment further because he hadn’t received all the investigative reports.
