Formal Charges Against Mayflower Teacher

Jassica Kaplan

Formal charges were filed Friday against a Mayflower School District Art Instructor.

32-year-old Jessica Kaplan has been officially charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault.

Kaplan has admitted to two separate sexual encounters with a 17-year-old student last month.

Kaplan is scheduled to appear in Faulkner County Circuit Court for a review hearing today. However, her attorney filed a motion Friday afternoon asking the court to delay the hearing to a later date.
