New Underwood teacher charged with fourth-degree rape
NEW UNDERWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $50,000 for a New Underwood high school teacher charged with rape.
The Pennington County Sheriff's Office says Kyle Keegan, 26, was arrested Thursday night in Rapid City. Keegan made an initial court appearance Friday morning, where his bond was set. Keegan is charged with four-degree rape of a victim between the ages of 13 and 15 and sexual contact with a child under 16. Fourth-degree rape carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
No lawyer was listed on court documents.
The New Underwood School District website says that Keegan teaches science at the high school.
A call to the superintendent of the New Underwood School District was not immediately returned.
