Former Grundy County teacher in Gruetli-Laager has pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated statutory rape.

Grundy County court officials tell us sentencing for Thomas Christopher Andrews will come at a later date, but no date has been set yet.

Andrews was a teacher at Swiss Memorial Elementary.

Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum says the victim was a 14-year-old student. But Shrum would not say whether that 14-year-old was once a student of Andrews.

Right after his arrest in December, the Grundy County school system supsended Andrews pending the outcome of his trial. Grundy County schools say in a letter that Thomas Christopher Andrews resigned from his position effective on Wednesday. He had been suspended without pay since the charges surfaced.

Here is the arrest report, provided by the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department. The name of the victim has been redacted.
