ALLEGAN, Mich. – Kelly Laker, a Plainwell High School Special Education teacher accused of sexually assaulting his mentally disabled student, was arraigned Monday in Allegan County.

Laker was arraigned on second degree criminal sexual conduct and obstruction of justice. His attorney says a ‘not guilty’ plea was entered.

Laker was arrested May 30 and immediately put on administrative leave.  The following Friday, a letter went home to Plainwell High School parents that informed them of the situation.

Testimony shows there are records of a phone call between Laker and the victim, evidence the court considered reason enought to to move forward with charges.

Laker’s attorney Fil Iorio said his client is innocent, and they do not intend to litigate this case through the media. He says Laker is looking forward to exercising his rights and that he expects vindication through the justice system.

Laker will be in court for a preliminary examination in the next two weeks.

    The course is under the same curriculum as the campus courses, but you do not have the professor in the
    class explaining things to you. Other students might want to
    study education or business. However, if the particular course that you want
    to take does require that you take a supervised exam to qualify
    then you will be offered a time and place to suit you.
