Missouri teacher charged in Capitol insurrection

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A teacher at a Christian school in Missouri has been charged for her alleged role in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in January.

Federal prosecutors charged Kelsey Leigh Ann Wilson this week with knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building.

Wilson, 29, of Springfield, was arrested Wednesday but released without having to pay bail on the condition that she promise to show up for future court hearings.

Her public defender declined to comment to The Associated Press on Saturday.

She was recently hired as a first-grade teacher at Dayspring Christian School in Springfield but expected to be fired following her arrest, The Kansas City Star reported. An AP request to the school for comment wasn’t immediately returned Saturday.

Prosecutors charged Wilson’s husband, Zachary John Wilson, with the same crime in February.
