DNA evidence impacts teacher sex case

Reported by KPLC Staff:

A few weeks ago, 7News reported that Marcus Lafanette was not indicted for alleged inappropriate sexual contact with a fifteen year old girl.

Now he's been indicted for carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

The Grand Jury received DNA evidence today that was not available when the case was originally presented a few weeks ago. The DNA collected from the scene connects Lafanette to the alleged crime.

A warrant is out for Lafanettes arrest.

Judge David Ritchie set his bond at $100,000.

If he does bond out, he is not allowed any contact with the victim or the victims family, and he can't commit any crimes while out on bond.
