Former JHS teacher may plead guilty to sex charges Monday

By this time tomorrow, we should know whether a former Joplin High School communication arts teacher has pleaded guilty to sex charges or whether she will stand trial.

Online Jasper County Circuit Court records indicate that pre-trial motions will be heard during a 9:30 a.m. Monday, April 27, hearing, but also leave an opening for a change of plea. The hearing had originally been scheduled for March 30, but was postponed at Low's request.

Low, 33, faces felony rape, sodomy, and pornography charges, in connection with sexual encounters with a student. She was arrested shortly after the school day ended at the 9-10 Center (the former Memorial Middle School) May 29, 2014. Low had taught at JHS for two years.
