Hearing delayed for former JHS teacher on sex charge

The prosecution, the defense lawyer, and defendant Jessica Low were in Jasper County Circuit Court this morning, but no action was taken.

At the request of Low and her attorney, the hearing, which could result in a guilty plea from Low, has been pushed back for a second time, this time until May 18.

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.

I think murder trials have commenced more quickly than this. The whole situation needs to come to a swift conclusion. What happened to speedy trials and justice?
