A teacher in north-central Iowa is facing charges. A 33-year-old Belmond Klemme High School teacher was arrested Wednesday afternoon for sexual exploitation by a school employee. Jody Lynn Barrus was arrested after an investigation the Wright County Sheriff’s Office began last week at the request of the Belmond Klemme School District.
Barrus turned herself into authorities and was processed in the Wright County Jail in Clarion. She has posted bond and will have an initial appearance on the charge next week.
