A protection order request was filed in January against Larry Yowler, a 20-year Greenon employee, accusing him of touching a student’s private area and making her sit on his lap during reading time.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office has launched a criminal investigation into Yowler but no charges have been filed.

A second protection order request was filed against Yowler on Thursday that also alleges sexual misconduct with a student. A hearing is set for that request on March 5.

The Springfield News-Sun was in court for the hearing but it was postponed until March 19.

It’s the second time the hearing was pushed back. The hearing was continued on Feb. 5 because attorneys had just been hired in the case. A reason for the continuation Friday wasn’t immediately available.
