Kansas Elementary Teacher Indicted On Child Sex Charge

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — An elementary school teacher in Kansas City, Kansas, has been charged with sexual solicitation of a minor.

42-year-old Jason Crum, of Shawnee, was charged Friday on a felony count of sexual exploitation of a child. He was released from jail after posting $100,000 bond.

The charge alleges that between January 2014 and January 2015, Crum attempted to convince a child under the age of 18 to engage in sexually explicit conduct.

Crum is listed on the Kansas City, Kansas, school district’s website as an elementary school teacher.

A district spokeswoman says officials had recently been made aware of Crum’s arrest and placed him on administrative leave.

Court records do not list an attorney for Crum.
