Debate Teacher Faces Sex Charges

BUHLER, Kan. (AP) _ A debate teacher and coach at Buhler High School has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a foreign exchange student.

Sixty-eight-year-old Richard Young was arrested Tuesday. He is charged with three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child and one count of indecent solicitation of a child. His bond is set at $75,000.

Young taught at Buhler High School for four years after working in Little River and Hutchinson schools. Buhler Superintendent David Brax said Young was suspended with pay Nov. 1, when school officials learned about the investigation.
