A former Indiana school teacher, Kathryn Hagan, is facing multiple criminal charges following an anonymous tip last month.
The Franklin Township Community School Corporation has stated that on April 7 they received an anonymous tip from a concerned parent concerning an inappropriate relationship between a Franklin Central High student and the 38-year-old Ms. Hagan.
Court documents allege that Hagan invited the student to her residence on March 28 and provided the boy Xanax. Three days later she again invited the student to her home, at which time the two allegedly engaged in sex.
Police followed up by speaking with a student from the school who indicated that there was a 10-second video of Hagan and the victim making its way around school. According to court documents, some students were attempting to use the video to blackmail Hagan for better grades in her class.
Hagan has also been accused of buying a gun for a student, then instructing the student to rob students who may have evidence of her crimes on their cell phones.

The charges Hagan now faces include conspiracy to commit robbery while armed with a deadly weapon, dangerous control of a firearm (providing a firearm to a child), two counts of child seduction, and dealing in a schedule IV controlled substance.
The school corporation issued a statement following the removal of Hagan from her teaching post, stating “Franklin Township is cooperating fully with the Department of Child Services and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department in their investigation.”
Although the school corporation also made it known that it had conducted a full criminal background check on Ms. Hagan.
Sex by teachers with their students. Videos and pictures of the criminal acts. A new case like this one seems to be uncovered every month. When will they ever learn?
