The Daily Star

---- — The court appearance of a local elementary school teacher who is accused of having sex with a teenager was postponed yesterday, officials said Tuesday.

Rachelle A. Keator, 25, of Davenport Center, was charged at the end of May with third-degree rape, a class E felony; third-degree criminal sexual act, a class E felony; and endangering the welfare of a child.

Keator, a fourth-grade teacher at Charlotte Valley Central School in Davenport, allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old male in the town of Maryland. After being arrested, she was released on bail.

Keator was supposed to appear in the Maryland Town Court on Tuesday, but court officials said the case has been adjourned until August 12.
