HARTFORD, S.D. (AP) — The West Central School District in Hartford has accepted the resignation of a female special education teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student.

Twenty-nine-year-old Kari Boll appeared in court Friday afternoon on three counts of fourth-degree rape.

The Argus Leader reports that Judge Crystal Johnson set her bond at $25,000 cash or surety carrying the conditions that Boll has no contact with the boy or anyone under 18.

Authorities allege a relationship between Boll and the boy began when he started working at her Hartford farm. The Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office says the relationship began in May 2016 and lasted until recently.

West Central School District Superintendent Jeff Danielsen says there was nothing in Boll's background screening "that would indicate anything like this."
