New developments in the investigation of a Union Public School teacher accused of sexual misconduct. That teacher is on un-paid leave and the Union Public School's superintendant has recommended she be fired. That will be determined at an April termination hearing.

In the criminal investigation, Broken Arrow Police detectives say it will still be a week before they're ready to present evidence to the district attorney. Tuesday, Broken Arrow Police re-interviewed the alleged victim, to ask about issues that came up in other witness interviews.

Broken Arrow Police Major Mark Irwin: "And we're developing other witnesses who have possibly seen the victim and the suspect together. We're also attempting to get grand jury supoenas for phone records."

As far as the victim's lawsuit against the school district, the Broken Arrow Police Department tell us the suit is running into legal complications. The school district doesn't know if the suit will be refiled. The victim's lawyer didn't return our calls.
