Some students at McPherson High School say Todd Brittingham is a popular teacher they trusted and went to for advice. Friday, Brittingham faces four felony counts of unlawful sexual relations with a student.
Brittingham, 26, was arrested Thursday night for having sex with a 17-year-old female student.
Brittingham is the McPherson High School soccer coach and journalism teacher. Investigators say the crimes happened in the spring of 2009.
Brittingham was released on ten thousand dollars bond. He will be back in court March 11th.
He has been suspended from teaching pending a vote from the USD 418 Board of Education on Monday.
