Hearing delayed for former JHS teacher facing sex charges
The hearing for former Joplin High School communications arts teacher Jessica Low, 33, originally scheduled for this morning in Jasper County Circuit Court, has been postponed until Monday, April 27, at her request.
The court docket indicates that on that date either motions hearing will be held or Low will change her not guilty plea.
Low faces felony rape, sodomy, and pornography charges.
Low, 33, was arrested shortly after the school day ended at the 9-10 Center (the former Memorial Middle School) May 29. Low had taught at JHS for two years.
