Rape charge dropped against former Tipton teacher

TIPTON, Okla._A former Tipton teacher, accused of having sex with two students, is no longer charged with the crime.

Online court records confirm Laura Cowan's case has been dismissed in Tillman County District Court. That's after witnesses did not show up for a hearing. Tipton police say Cowan told them she had sex with one student once in her classroom and again in her car in the country outside of Tipton during spring break.

In January, she says she had sex with another student in a Frederick motel and again in her car. She was charged with second-degree rape after investigators say the former students confirmed the stories. Even with this dismissal, the case could be re-filed.
