FORSYTH, Mo. (AP) - A former southwest Missouri teacher is facing three counts of statutory rape involving a former 16-year-old student.

Taney County authorities say 27-year-old Caleb Moon, of Ozark, had sex with the student in his classroom at Forsyth High School, the school bathroom and his truck.

Forsyth Superintendent Brent Blevins said Moon was placed on administrative leave Nov. 22 and resigned Nov. 26. The Springfield News-Leader reports (https://sgfnow.co/1l29ubh ) he taught high school science and coached junior high boys basketball in Forsyth for only three months. Moon previously worked in Niangua.

Online court records indicate Moon also is charged with two counts of second-degree statutory sodomy and one charge of sexual contact with a student. He bonded out of jail on Tuesday. The records do not show that he has an attorney.
