IDA GROVE, Iowa (AP) - A substitute teacher has been accused of having sexual relationships with students at two northwest Iowa high schools.

Online court records show 32-year-old John Tietsort, of rural Battle Creek, is charged in Ida County with two counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee and three counts of lascivious conduct with a minor. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says in a news release that while working as a substitute teacher, Tietsort had repeated sexual contact with a high school student from Odebolt-Arthur and Battle Creek-Ida Grove Schools and with a high school student from Maple Valley-Anthon Oto Schools.
