Former student teacher in child porn case will stand trial

On March 5th, 2019, Emily Louise Edson and her attorney filed a written waiver of her preliminary hearing. The courts set the case for trial.

The Barton County, Missouri Prosecutor’s Office filed charges against Edson, 35, of Golden City, for possession of child pornography, three counts of sexual misconduct involving a child by indecent exposure and one count of enticement of a child.

The alleged crimes happened at the Lamar Middle School in 2017.

According to court documents received by KOAM and FOX14, an investigation was open referencing a Lamar School District student teacher acting inappropriately with her students. During the investigation, documents state that interviews were conducted on possible victims.

One student alleged that his teacher, Edson, spoke ‘sexually’ to him and that she sent a nude photo of herself to him.

Two other students alleged that Edson also sent a nude photo of herself to them.

Edson is scheduled to return to court on April 11th, 2019, for further proceedings.
