The Butler County Sheriff’s Office received a tip from someone at the high school about the alleged sex between Wixon and the teenager on Monday. When investigators questioned the student, he admitted to having an ongoing sexual relationship with Wixon. She was promptly arrested.
According to Sheriff Kelly Herzet the boy, who is now 16 years old, claimed to have engaged in sexual activities with Wixon several times throughout the current school year.
On Wednesday, Wixon was officially charged with sexual misconduct and indecent liberties with a child, a severity level 3 felony in Kansas. The school district released a statement announcing Wixon’s termination on Monday, referencing the active investigation on the part of the sheriff’s office.
Wixon’s best friend, Danica Zimmerman, insists that the student fabricated the entire incident because he was angry that Wixon turned him down. Zimmerman explained that Wixon is married with three kids and would never risk jail time just to sleep with a student.
