Aggravated battery and misdemeanor sexual battery
Ex-teacher, council member pleads in student sex encounter

A former high school teacher and Shawnee City Council member pleaded no contest to having a sexual encounter with a student.

Justin Adrian, who taught social studies teacher at Olathe East High School, pleaded Thursday to aggravated battery and misdemeanor sexual battery. He will be sentenced Jan. 8.

KMBC-TV reports Adrian, who is 33, began talking to the Olathe East student through an online dating apps. The sexual encounter occurred in a classroom at Olathe East High School.

The student was 18, but it is illegal in Kansas for a teacher to have sexual contact with a student at the same school.

Adrian resigned from the Shawnee City Council but resigned when the allegations surfaced.
