On this edition of ST, we learn about a locally based conference on the prevention of child sexual abuse, which is happening today and tomorrow (the 8th and 9th) at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center (at 41st and Yale). "Shifting Child Sexual Abuse Paradigms" -- hosted by the nonprofit Empowering Adults-Protecting Children, Inc. -- will bring together a range of experts who work every day in this regard with children and families throughout Oklahoma.

On this edition of ST, we speak with the award-winning journalist Kristen Lombardi, who's a staff writer at The Center for Public Integrity, and who's probably best known for her series of articles based on an in-depth and far-reaching investigation into campus rape cases in America (which won the Robert F. Kennedy Award and the Dart Award in 2011, as well as the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Public Service in 2010, among other honors).

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a 27-year-old Sand Springs teacher has been arrested on a rape complaint involving a 17-year-old student.

Police say they arrested the female teacher Saturday morning at a hotel in Tulsa.

The woman is an employee at Charles Page High School in Sand Springs. The woman has not been formally charged, and police released few details because the student is a minor.
