Traffic accident causes power outage at Joplin Courts Building delaying Webb City teacher sex trial

One hundred twenty-four  Empire District Electric customers, including the Jasper County Courthouse in Joplin are without power due to a traffic accident. There is no word on how long the power is expected to be out.

The outage has reportedly delayed the beginning of the jury trial of former Webb City High School choir teacher Carrie Njoroge, who is charged with having sex with a student.

A motions hearing in the Njoroge case was held Monday before Judge David Mouton. The trial, which is expected to last two days, was scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
