Another delay for Springfield teacher facing prostitution charge

For the second time, the arraignment of a Springfield elementary school teacher facing a felony charge of promoting prostitution.

Online Greene County Circuit Court records indicate that Friday's scheduled hearing was postponed at the request of Laura Fiedler. The case had also been set for arraignment on March 30.

Fiedler and her husband Mark were arrested after a sting last year at the Landmark Hotel. The Springfield News-Leader reported it this way:

The officer arrived in the room and negotiated for a massage and oral sex for $150, the documents said. He then gave officers listening in on a recording device the signal to enter the room.

The woman, who was nude when officers knocked on the door, agreed to speak with police and told them that the Fiedlers arranged her meetings with clients. She said of whatever she charged, $35 went to "the house." The woman said she had been instructed to leave the money in the room, the search warrant said.

Another woman was in another room at the time of the sting, documents said. She also told authorities the Fiedlers arranged her clients for her, according to the search warrant.
The new arraignment date is May 24. Mrs. Fiedler is free on $2,500 bond.
