Trial date set for former North Middle School reading teacher on 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.
