Former Shawnee Mission West teacher Michelle Preston was "visibly pregnant" when she showed up to her initial appearance on charges that she engaged in unlawful sexual relations with three students, KMBC reported. I'd say, after seeing the screenshot above (and credit to Hey Cameraman for being the first to point it out).
Preston, 27, is accused of engaging in consensual sex with three students between September 1 and December 31. Her now-removed bio on the school's website mentioned that she was married, making this all sound like an episode of Maury.
Preston had been on administrative leave since March 7 after school officials received a report that Preston was allegedly carrying on an inappropriate relationship with a student.
In May, the school board voted against renewing Preston's contract. The board cited a violation of district policy forbidding inappropriate behavior with students as a reason for her dismissal.
The same day that her suspension was announced, Preston was involved in a car wreck in Miami County. Her 2011 Chevy Equinox went off a ledge at 247th and Flint and landed in a creek embankment. She was airlifted to a local hospital.
So we're all left with a lot of questions.
