Joplin teacher arrested in sex case

An anonymous tip that a Joplin High School teacher was texting nude photos of herself to students has landed the teacher in jail. A 32-year-old teacher was taken into custody at 3:50 p.m. Wednesday at the temporary ninth- and 10th-grade campus of the high school at 310 W. Eighth St. She remained in custody Thursday night at the city jail despite a lack of charges. The Globe, in general, does not name people accused of criminal acts until they have been charged.
