(KAIR)–A plea agreement is in the works regarding the case involving a former Atchison based truancy officer accused of an improper sexual relationship with a student.
Twenty-nine-year-old Heather Robinson made a brief appearance in Atchison County District Court Monday afternoon where Judge Martin Asher granted her attorney’s request to continue the hearing so details of a plea agreement could be finalized and put on paper.
Robinson is now scheduled to make her next court appearance on August 18th. She is facing eleven counts of unlawful sexual relations. Authorities say that although the alleged sexual activity with a 17-year-old student was consensual, state statute prohibits someone in Robinson’s capacity to engage in such a relationship.
Robinson was employed with the Leavenworth Department of Juvenile Services, and assigned to Atchison’s USD 409 as a truancy officer. According to Superintendent Susan Myers, she was placed on administrative leave by her employer on May 7th, and has not had contact with the school district
or its students since that time.
Robinson was arrested on May 30th after an investigation by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
She was released later that same day after posting a cash or surety bond of $50,000.
