Judge rules against former Webb City teacher in sex case
Attorneys for Njoroge, 31, said she had a constitutional right to have sex with the 18-year-old student since they were consenting adults and that the Missouri law prohibiting public school teachers from having sex with students was too vague.
According to the probable cause affidavit from the Webb City Police Department, Njoroge and the student had sex over a three-month period, including on April 15, 2014, in Njoroge's office at Webb City High School.
R-7 officials placed Njoroge on paid administrative leave April 17, 2014, and she resigned the following day, according to a statement issued by the school district.
