Just-married Iowa teacher accused of sex acts with students as young as 13

Months after her wedding, an Iowa teacher faces criminal charges for allegedly “engag[ing] in multiple sexually-oriented acts with at least three [male] students, the youngest of which being 13,” according to area police. 

Cassidy Kraus of Westside, 24, was just married to her husband on July 1, according to an online announcement from the couple. Court records show that her new husband filed for divorce on August 28.

Three days before the filing, Inside Edition reported, Kraus tendered her resignation in lieu of termination at IKM-Manning Schools. 

The school board announced the news at the time and noted that the teacher had been on leave since an investigation was launched into her alleged conduct after the school received reports from a parent that she was distributing illicit material. 

If convicted on all counts, under Iowa sentencing guidelines, Kraus could face up to 33 years in prison.
