Kyle Baker, 27, was arrested back in December after the Shawnee Police Department received a tip that he was involved in an alleged relationship with a 14-year-old Shawnee High School student. Baker has been on unpaid leave from Shawnee School District since he was charged in December. 

Assistant Prosecutor Terri Kohlrieser was alerted that Baker had sent multiple letters to the victim. He also had the son of a fellow inmate who goes to the same school as the victim give her letters and other messages. Kohlrieser received the letters from the girl's mother.

In the letters, Baker asked the teenage girl what she told police so that they could get their stories straight, and that he wanted to be with her after everything was over. Shawnee Township Police Detective Don Marik also heard further plans Baker had to contact the victim through recorded jail phone calls. 

Baker was not out on bond and is not expected to make bond, but Kohlrieser says the content of the letters increases in intensity, and she asked the court for a specific non contact order separate of bond conditions. The State is looking to add a tampering with evidence charge against Baker as well. She will also be speaking to others involved in potential aiding and abetting.

Judge David A. Cheney admonished and cautioned Baker from attempting to contact the victim in any sort of way, and ordered that he not send or receive mail except through his legal counsel.
