Former Southeast Missouri Middle School Teacher Pleads Guilty in Sex Case

OCTOBER 13, 2006 - Posted at 3:39 p.m. CDT

 

POPLAR BLUFF, MO - A former southeast Missouri middle school teacher faces sentencing December 19 after pleading guilty to four felony counts of having sex with underage teenage boys.

Susan Sharp reached an agreement with prosecutors Wednesday to plead guilty to two counts each of statutory rape and second-degree statutory sodomy.  The case was moved to Butler County on a change of venue.

Sharp, now 49, was removed from her teaching positions in November of 2004 after the allegations surfaced.  None of the boys were students at New Madrid Central Middle School, where she taught.

The Missouri Attorney General's office, which handled the case, recommended the maximum seven-year sentence on each count, to run concurrently.
