Trial date set for former North Middle School reading teacher on statutory rape charge

Three days have been set aside beginning April 11 in Jasper County Circuit Court for former North Middle School reading teacher Amanda Schweitzer's trial on a felony statutory rape charge.

Judge Dean Dankelson will preside.

Schweitzer, 38, allegedly had sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old student at her home March 29.

Schweitzer is also charged with three felony charges, kidnapping, statutory rape, and statutory sodomy in Newton County for allegedly taking the same 13-year-old boy to the Water's Edge Camp Ground and having sex with him.

Schweitzer, who was placed on administrative leave by the Joplin R-8 School District, has since resigned.
