Former teacher could be freed in 120 days in child sex case
MARSHFIELD (AP) — A former southwest Missouri teacher was sentenced to seven years in prison for having sexual contact with a student but could be released in 120 days.
The Springfield News-Leader reported Johnna Feazell was sentenced Monday in Webster County for statutory sodomy, sexual contact with a student, tampering with physical evidence and tampering with a witness.
Missouri attorney general's office spokeswoman Nanci Gonder says placement in the Missouri Department of Corrections' sex offender assessment unit means Feazell could be released, on probation, after 120 days if she does well in the program. Feazell also has to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
Feazell was an 8th-grade teacher and coach in Marshfield until last fall. She has agreed to surrender her teaching certificate.
