Indianapolis Teacher Arrested For Sleeping With One Student & Giving Gun To Another

Kathryn Hagan

Kathryn Hagan, a 38-year-old former Indianapolis teacher, was arrested after she allegedly had sex with a student. Hagan also allegedly bought another student a gun.

Hagan was arrested by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department on charges that she allegedly had an inappropriate sexual relationship with one of her 17-year-old students.

According to reports, after Hagan invited the unidentified teenager to her home, she reportedly gave him Xanax. Hagan, who was employed as a teacher at Franklin Central High School at the time, also provided a gun to a second student. According to police, Hagan knew the student intended to use the gun to commit a crime.

Back on April 7, the Franklin Township Community School Corporation received an anonymous tip about Hagan’s relationship with the teen. School administrators then subsequently notified the Indiana Department of Child Services, as well as local police.

Hagan was then placed on suspension and resigned as an employee of the school district.

According to court documents, Hagan invited the victim over to her home on March 28, and she gave him Xanax. On March 31, she invited the victim to her home again, and they had sex in her upstairs bedroom.

Police spoke with another student who said there was a 10-second video going around the school that showed Hagan and the victim naked together. Court documents say students were trying to use the video to blackmail Hagan into giving them better grades.

Investigators say Hagan also bought a gun for another student, and she told that student to use it to rob other students who may have evidence incriminating her on their phones.

Hagan, whose first day at the school was on January 3, resigned from her position on April 7.

The Franklin Township Community School Corporation released a statement on the situation, saying, “Franklin Township is cooperating fully with the Department of Child Services and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department in their investigation.”

Hagan is now being charged with conspiracy to commit robbery while armed with a deadly weapon, two counts of child seduction, dangerous control of a firearm, and dealing in a schedule IV controlled substance.
