Former South Dakota teacher pleads guilty to having sexual contact with male student

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A former South Dakota teacher is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to having sexual contact with a male student.

Kari Boll pleaded guilty late last month to fourth-degree rape and sexual contact with a child under 16.

A sentencing date has not been set.

A Minnehaha County grand jury had indicted Boll on 21 felony counts.

Boll worked as a special education teacher for the West Central District in Hartford. Authorities alleged that she had a sexual relationship with a then-15-year-old student.

Boll resigned last year.
