St. Charles Teacher Facing Sex Charges for Assault of Student

ST. CHARLES, MO. (KMOX) – A teacher in St. Charles County is facing sex charges involving a student.

29-year-old Craig Lachance of Cottleville is a choir instructor at Fort Zumwalt East High School. Authorities are charging Lachance with first degree sodomy and tampering with a victim in a felony prosecution. They say Lachance sexually attacked a male student last July in Lachance’s apartment after the teenager passed out after drinking alcohol provided by Lachance.
