Teacher charged with failure to report abuse
MARION (AP) — The teacher of an eastern Iowa classroom where a 15-year-old volunteer sexually abused kindergartners now faces charges.
Diane Graham has been charged with failure to report child abuse. Her initial court appearance has been set for April 24.
Court records say Graham was a teacher at a Marion elementary school when two students told her in August that they were being abused by a student volunteer in her classroom. Prosecutors say Graham did not report the abuse, allowing it to continue for two more months.
