Sentencing Delayed In School Sex Case

KSAL Staff - October 6, 2014 3:45 pm

A Kansas couple was sentenced to three years of probation for laundering millions of dollars in suspected drug money through their small town bank.

Sentencing for a former middle school counselor convicted in a sex case involving a student was delayed Monday afternoon in Saline County District Court.

Back in June Brooke Dinkel was found guilty of sex crimes involving a 13-year-old student. A jury found the 33-year-old former Smoky Valley Middle School Counselor guilty of two counts of rape. She was acquitted of other charges that included 8 other counts of rape and 10 counts of aggravated criminal sodomy.

The case stemmed from sexual encounters at Dinkel’s home with a student. She was a school counselor at the time, and the student was 13-years-old.

During the trial Dinkel contended that the boy forced himself on her the first time. It happened when he was at her house helping her with a wallpaper project. She said after that she continued to have sexual encounters with the student because he was threatening to get her in trouble.

Sentencing in the case was delayed until November.
