Update from Sheriff’s Office on Teacher Accused of Raping Student
During Friday's Media Briefing, Minnehaha County Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Gearman talked about the arrest of 28-year-old Kari Boll who has been charged with three counts of fourth-degree rape.
"Through our investigation, we were able to determine that Kari Boll had some sexual contact with a 15-year-old male---a student at West Central School. We have been in contact with the school's administration and are working with them. On Thursday, Boll was arrested on the three counts of sexual contact."
At the present time, Gearman said authorities don't believe there are more victims in the case.
"Well the investigation is going to continue. I have been in contact with the McCook County Sheriff. There may be some instances in his county as well---where they went to that area and may have had some contact there with each other. As of now, we are concluding our investigation. Our State's Attorney's office will get together with the McCook County State's Attorney and see if there are any further charges
Gearman says Boll is being held on a $25,000 cash/surety bond.
Boll has been working as a special education teacher at West Central for three years.
