*Attempted sexual exploitation against a then-17-year-old (employment), with an alternate count of attempted sexual exploitation (possession of media), and attempted unlawful sexual relations (teacher with student above age 16). Bosiljevac is accused of attempted activity with this person between mid-August 2019 and February 2020
*Sexual battery and attempted unlawful sexual relations (teacher with student above age 16) against a then-16-year-old. Bosiljevac is accused of attempted activity from November 2018 to June 2019
*Attempted sexual exploitation (employment) against a then-16-year-old, with an alternate count of attempted sexual exploitation (possession of media). Bosiljevac is accused of attempted activity between November 2018 and June 2019
*Indecent liberties against a then-15-year-old after alleged activity between July 2018 and February 2019
*Indecent liberties against a then-15-year-old between February and June 2019

10:15 am Thursday: Former Emporia High teacher arrested on suspicion of illegal sexual activity

Formal charges are currently pending against a former Emporia High teacher.

Tyler Bosiljevac was arrested early Thursday on suspicion of three counts of indecent liberties with a child, two counts each of attempted unlawful voluntary sexual relations and attempted sexual exploitation of a child and single counts of sexual battery and indecent solicitation.

Details are pending and likely will not be released unless the case goes to trial. However, Police Capt. Dave DeVries says an investigation began this past February after a student complained to Emporia High staff about alleged improper behavior. Officers conducted "dozens of interviews" with students, and DeVries says officers found multiple victims.

Bosiljevac was fired by Emporia Public Schools in late February for several reasons, including:

*Failing to demonstrate sound judgment
*Violating the district’s sexual harassment policy
*Violating the district’s policy on staff-student relations
*Violating the district’s ethics policy
*Violating the district’s policy on providing a safe learning environment
*Failing to maintain a positive learning environment

Bosiljevac was a full-time teacher with the district 14 years before his dismissal.
