SEX OFFENDER: Teacher Admits To Sex With Student
A former Cedar Rapids chemistry teacher has pleaded guilty to having sex with a student.
Forty-two-year-old Heather Adams admitted to one count of sexual exploitation by a school employee in Linn county Court Monday. Prosecutors say Adams had sex with an 18-year-old student last year.
The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports Adams resigned from her teaching position at Washington High School shortly after the incident; she had been a teacher there for 18-years.
Adams was given a deferred judgment, two years of probation, and will be listed on the sex offender registry for 10 years. If she successfully completes her probation, the conviction will be removed from her record.
