A teacher in Illinois is facing prison time after she admitted to sexually abusing two middle school students in Kane County.
31-year-old Lindsay P. Anderson, a former teacher for Carpentersville Middle School, pleaded guilty late last week to one count each of felony criminal sexual assault and felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
From 2013 to 2015, Anderson sexually assaulted two teen males, aged 14 and 15, respectively.
“Ms. Anderson leveraged her position as a teacher to gain these victims’ trust and then selfishly took advantage of that trust,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said. “As a teacher, she was in a position of authority and clearly knew that what she did was wrong and harmful to these children.”
According to the Daily Herald, a search warrant was secured in 2015 after the mother of one of the victims called the East Dundee Police Department, claiming she was suspicious of Anderson, who would drive her son home from football practice, buy him things, and take him to various places.
The teen later told investigators that Anderson gave him marijuana and had sex with him in the woods.
Anderson faces from four to 22 years in prison when sentenced by a judge in December, along with lifetime registration as a sex offender.
