NEILLSVILLE, Wis. — A former Abbotsford High School teacher charged with sexually assaulting two students is accused of contacting one of the teens.
Clark County prosecutors have filed additional charges of bail jumping and intimidating a witness against 25-year-old Andy Follen. A criminal complaint says Follen tried to convince one of the teens to contact the district attorney to have his charges reduced.
The News-Herald Media (http://mnhne.ws/1ghAIX0 ) says Follen was charged last month with five counts of sexual assault of a student by a staff member. He's accused of having a sexual relationship with two students while employed as a math teacher at Abbotsford.
Follen is prohibited from having any contact with the students.
