An administrative law judge has ruled that a Yakima teacher who was acquitted of sex crimes with two teenage boys can return to the classroom.
When Michele Taylor, 32, will return to work at East Valley School District has not yet been determined.
Michael Patterson, an attorney for the school district, told the Yakima Herald-Republic on Tuesday that there apparently were credibility issues with the two boys. The district hasn't decided whether to appeal.
Taylor, a physical education teacher, was found not guilty in June of charges of sexual misconduct and communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. She was accused of having sex with a 16-year-old and sending sexual text messages to a 15-year-old.
