Marysville School district parents and staff received a letter from Superintendent Shawn Wightman this afternoon informing them that criminal charges were filed against one of their high school teachers.
Wightman has placed the teacher on administrative leave “pending full review of the situation and conclusion of the criminal process.” The teacher will not be allowed on school premises or allowed to participate in activities with students or staff during this time.
According to the St. Clair County website, the St. Clair County Prosecutors office has charged Marysville High School teacher, Steven M. Rogers, with multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct, distributing obscene matter to children, and assault with intent to commit sexual penetration. Rogers plead not guilty.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the St. Clair County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office at (810) 985-2400 or the Marysville Police Department at (810) 364-6300.
