Effingham, Ill. (Peoria, Ill.) – A former Peoria high school teacher is facing charges that he got a student drunk, then had sex with them.
A grand jury yesterday indicted Philip Earhart on two counts of criminal sexual assault and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
Police say Earhart got a student drunk last spring and engaged in an ‘improper sexual relationship,’ though they’re not offering any details.
Earhart had been on leave from Peoria Schools, but resigned on Monday.
