Trial of former North Middle School reading teacher on sex charges likely to be delayed

The trial of former North Middle School reading teacher, Amanda Schweitzer, 38, on federal sex charges, originally scheduled for September 24 in U. S. District Court in Springfield, is likely to be moved to the December 3 docket.

Schweitzer's attorney filed a motion today asking for the delay saying "additional time is needed to conduct critical evaluations of the discovery, relevant guidelines, potential motions to suppress and to otherwise make a global evaluation of the case and options to resolve this matter."

Schweitzer was indicted in January, charged with sexually exploiting a minor and transmitting obscene material to another minor.

According to the indictment, Schweitzer "used, persuaded, induced, enticed and coerced a minor, John Doe (DOB 2003) to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction" which was then sent to a child born in 2002.

The charges appear to be in connection with an investigation initiated by the Joplin Police Department after it received reports Schweitzer had sent nude photos of herself to three boys, age 14, 14 and 13. It was during that investigation that they came across the evidence indicating Schweitzer had sex with the 13-year-old.

Schweitzer also faces a Jasper County charge of felony statutory rape for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old student at her home March 29, 2017. The next hearing in that case is scheduled for October 1.

She 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.

Two lawsuits have been filed in Jasper County Circuit Court in connection with the case.

I don't know why they are prosecuting consentual sex between some young horny male and some burnt-out old whore as long as she didn't give him a sexual disease or become pregnant. I myself would have been more than happy to have free sex with an old slut when I was his age. I would also have kept my mouth shut in hopes of getting a twofer and more sex with an experienced much older slut.

Older men having sex with underage girls is a different matter. Boys can't get pregnant. This is Politically Correct foolishness run amok. Why bother with the expense of a trial and long incarceration at taxpayer expense when a public flogging would be cheaper and more effective?
