Copy-Cedar Rapids substitute teacher accused in student sex case

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A former substitute teacher is accused of having sexual contact with a Cedar Rapids student.

Twenty-four-year-old Mary Haglin is charged with sexual exploitation by a school employee. She was arrested Friday. Online court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment on Haglin's behalf.

Authorities say she had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy who attended Washington High School. Haglin told Cedar Rapids station KGAN (http://bit.ly/2arK2Ns ) that she regrets what took place.

The district says that after its investigation it barred Haglin from teaching at district schools. But the district also says that, because of a miscommunication with the substitute placement system, Haglin worked for a short time as an elementary substitute at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.
