Ex-Teacher Gets Probation in Field-Trip Sex Case
Janet Klatt, 44, of Charlotte, was charged with sexual activity between a school personnel member and a student, a felony offense. She entered an Alford plea and was given 30 months' probation and was ordered to have no contact with the male student and to pay a $500 fine and court costs.
An Alford plea is one in which a defendant does not admit guilt, but admits that sufficient evidence exists with which the prosecution could likely convince a judge or jury to find the defendant guilty.
Both Klatt and her attorney declined to comment Thursday afternoon.
Investigators said Klatt, who taught at a private school in Concord called The Cannon School, was discovered having sex with the student at the Clarion Hotel on Hillsborough Street during the overnight trip on April 28-29.
Last month, Klatt entered an Alford plea in connection with charges stemming from an incident in Cabarrus County with the same student.
