Loryn Barclay of Washburn, Missouri, is charged with having sex with a 17 year old student. They allege that she had sex with the boy twice and performed oral sex on him multiple times. Sex occurred mostly at his house and she will be tried in two separate counties as the sex took place in each of them.
Loryn Barclay of Washburn, Missouri, allegedly had oral sex with the teen in his car and on multiple occasions between November 2016 and January 2017 at his home in while she worked as a substitute teacher at Monett High School in Lawrence County, reported The Monett Times.
She also reportedly admitted having intercourse with him twice at his home, said the outlet.
On Sunday, she was charged with six counts of sexual contact with a student in two counties.
Monett City Police Officer Jay Jastal, who works in the school as a resource officer, was tipped off to the alleged relationship on May 3.
The next day, the teacher is said to have admitted an ‘inappropriate relationship’ with the teen.
Barclay had been hired as a substitute teacher in the fall and promoted to paraprofessional in November.
In January, she became a teacher assistant. She was removed the day the alleged relationship was reported to police.
‘When we became aware of potential involvement with a student, we followed all procedures,’ Monett Superintendent Brad Hanson told the outlet. ‘We had a conversation with her and she was not employed from then on. We dealt with it swiftly…and now, we’ll let the legal side do it’s work.’
Barclay was released after posting $25,000 bond in Lawrence County. Her next appearance in court is set for July 24.
She is also wanted in Barry County, and a warrant has been issued for her arrest in the same case.
