Peabody-Burns teacher surrenders to court
Christopher Young, a Peabody-Burns High School social studies teacher charged Feb. 23 with eight felony charges alleging sex offenses with two students, surrendered at the courthouse Monday afternoon.
District Judge Michael Powers agreed to modify bond at the request of Young’s lawyer, John Rapp of Wichita.
Previously, bond was set at $150,000. Powers converted bond to $50,000 surety and $100,000 own recognizance, meaning if he fails to show up for court appearances, he’ll forfeit both the $50,000 surety bond and the additional $100,000.
Young was taken into custody and booked into jail. He bonded out soon thereafter.
Powers scheduled Young’s preliminary hearing for April 16.
