MSSU education student/Lamar student teacher arrested on child pornography charges

A Missouri Southern State University education department student who recently did her student teaching in the Lamar R-1 School District has been charged by the Barton County prosecuting attorney's office with two counts of possessing child pornography.

Barton County Circuit Court records indicate that the Southwest Missouri Cyber Crimes Task Force uncovered photos depicting two naked underage boys either having anal intercourse and simulating the act while executing a search warrant on Emily Louise Edson's phone.

According to the probable cause statement, the search was in connection with a separate investigation. Edson, 35, Golden City, was arrested by the Lamar Police Department June 4.

She is free after posting a $5,000 surety bond.

Edson, a senior at MSSU, received the top award for middle school education from the School of Arts and Sciences during the annual Academic Achievement Ceremony held April 26 at the university.
