WHEATON, Ill. (CBS) – Bond was set at $600,000 on Wednesday for a Wheaton North High School teacher charged with sexually assaulting a former student.
Edwin Klemm, 43, faces 11 counts of criminal sexual assault.
WBBM Newsradio’s Dave Berner reports Klemm appeared in court Wednesday through a video connection from the DuPage County Jail. He listened to the charges against him with his head down.
DuPage County prosecutors alleged Klemm had a sexual relationship with a student in 2011, starting when the girl was 16 years old.
Prosecutors said he had sex with the girl numerous times – including in a movie theater parking lot, at his home – at least one time when his daughter was in the house – and inside a classroom at the high school.
The girl is now 18 years old, and attending college.
Klemm, who is married and lives in St. Charles, has been a teacher for 13 years. He was due back in court on April 15.
