BELLE PLAINE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a southern Kansas teacher’s aide has been removed from his position after he was arrested on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a child.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the Belle Plaine special education paraprofessional was arrested Sunday. The 22-year-old was booked on suspicion of unlawful voluntary sexual relations.

He had worked for a special education cooperative that serves five school districts within Sumner County.
