Ex-Seymour High School Teacher Charged with Child Seduction
According to WTHR, a former teacher at Seymour High School has been charged with child seduction after a paternity test shows he is the father of a child with a former student.
Todd Weaver, 50-years-old, had an inappropriate relationship with a student while she was enrolled at the high school. The investigation began in September following the student giving birth to the child. Weaver was quickly placed on administrative leave.
Investigators conducted interviews and got a warrant to examine Weaver and the student’s cell phone activity and their DNA. On November 17th, Seymour Police charged Weaver on one count of child seduction following the paternity test results.
Child seduction is a level 5 felony. According to the police, the seduction charge was a result of Weaver being in a position of power as a teacher and having an inappropriate relationship with a child under the age of 18-years-old.
The investigation is ongoing, and Weaver has been transported to the Jackson County Jail.
