Fmr Bryant teacher accused of having sex with male student

Posted: Updated:

BRYANT (KATV) - A former Bryant High School teacher is wanted on sexual assault charges.

Investigators said in a press release 31-year-old Courtney Speer was having sex with a 17-year-old male student at her home in Benton while employed as a teacher at Bryant High School. The student attends Bryant High School and told investigators he had been a student of Speer's when he was a freshman.

He said his first sexual encounter with her was in the high school parking lot in her car in June of 2012. He told investigators they had four total encounters in the parking lot.

Speer resigned her position as a 9th grade English teacher Monday.

There are six felony first-degree sexual assault warrants out for Speer's arrest - four out of Bryant and two out of Benton. The case is still being investigated and more charges could be announced.

Speer was originally set to meet with investigators Tuesday afternoon but has since retained an attorney. Investigators expect her to turn herself in at the Saline County Jail Wednesday morning.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Benton PD at (501) 778-1171 or (501) 315-TIPS. You can also send an anonymous text to CRIMES (274637) with the keyword BNPD in the body of the text.
