CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — An eastern Iowa school nurse has pleaded not guilty to a charge that she had sex with a 16-year-old student.

Linn County District Court records say 46-year-old Angela Beik, of Marion, entered the plea last week to a charge of sexual exploitation by a school employee. Her trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 24

Beik was the school nurse at Linn-Mar High School in Marion and also employed at St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids. Police began an investigation of Beik in March. They’d learned that state officials were checking a report that Beik told fellow St. Luke’s nurses that she’d had consensual sex with the boy. They reported the conversation to officials.
