Former teacher sentenced to jail, probation

January 9, 2009

A former Basehor Elementary School fifth-grade teacher on Friday received 30 days in jail and a three-year probation sentence after he pleaded in November to three counts of inappropriately touching students.

Leavenworth County District Judge Gunnar Sundby had convicted Floyd M. Rogers Jr. of three counts of attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child. Prosecutors accused Rogers of touching schoolchildren over their clothing that began in 2004-2005.

Rogers, of Bonner Springs, has no criminal history, so prosecutors did not oppose probation because he will not be allowed to get a teaching license again.

The victims’ parents also did not object to the plea deal because the victims did not have to testify at trial.
