OLATHE, Kan. - A former Johnson County high school teacher pleaded guilty to having sexual contact with two teenage boys he met through online ads.
Forty-three-year-old Jeremy John Way, of Shawnee, entered the plea Wednesday to two counts of criminal sodomy with the boys. The boys did not attend St. James Academy in Lenexa, where Way taught science until the allegations against him surfaced in February.
Before going to St. James in 2008, Way taught at Mill Valley High School in Shawnee.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1aTC8zQ ) the investigation began when the parents of a 14-year-old boy called police after discovering sexually explicit emails on his cellphone. Police traced phone records to Way and during the investigation learned about the second boy.
