JoAnn Stephens expected in court today

WOOD COUNTY (KLTV) - Several motions are expected to be heard in the case of a former teacher having a sexual relationship with a student.

Joann Stephens has been indicted on five counts, including one sexual assault charge.

Investigators say, while Stephens worked within Mineola ISD, she maintained an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old student. That relationship is believed to have gone on for three years.

KLTV has been selected as the pool camera and is the only television station allowed to have a camera inside the courtroom during the hearing.

We'll have the outcome of today's hearing first on and reaction for you tonight at 5, 6 and 10.
