Highland High School teacher sentenced to two years in prison for sexual exploitation
WASHINGTON, Iowa (KCRG) - On January 20th, 2022, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office arrested a teacher at Highland High School for sexual exploitation of a minor.
Police say that through an investigation it was determined that the sexual abuse of a minor female student occurred at Highland High School by one of its teachers, 41-year-old Justin David Rapier.
The affidavit states that Rapier engaged in a sexual relationship with the student while the student was attending school there.
Rapier was sentenced to two years in prison after being convicted of Sexual Exploitation by a School Employee.
“The law provides a light prison sentence for someone that caused a lifetime of hurt,” Washington County Attorney John Gish stated afterwards. “But at the end of the day, Rapier will be on the Sex Offender Registry and will never teach again.”
