Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster said today that a former middle school science teacher in Montgomery County has pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted enticement of a child under 15 and to one count of sexual contact with a student by a teacher, and will spend eight years in prison. In addition, the former teacher, Larry J. McMinn, has surrendered his teaching license.
“Teachers hold positions of great trust in our society,” Koster said. “We must ensure that teachers who betray that trust and prey on their students pay for their crimes and never teach again.”
The Missouri Attorney General’s Office assisted the Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney, Nicole Volkert, in the case.
