Teacher Found Not Guilty of Having Sex With Student

Hanover Township, Luzerne County- A high school teacher in Luzerne County accused of having sex with a student was found not guilty on July 29th.

Prosecutors argued Edward Evans used his position of trust at Hanover Area High School to take advantage of an 18-year-old senior.

Back in January, the alleged victim testified he had reached out to Evans for counseling regarding health issues, but he said Evans turned it into something sexual.

The jury didn't agree and came back with a not guilty verdict just a few hours after deliberations began.
