JOPLIN, Mo. — Amanda Schweitzer, 37, was released on $40,000 bond, plus $10,000 cash.

She was being held in the Jasper County Jail on statutory rape charges for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old boy at her Joplin home.

Schweitzer is also facing criminal charges in Newton County, where authorities claim she had sex with 13-year-old at a south Joplin campground.

The investigation started in March when three male students claimed Schweitzer had sent them nude photos of herself.
