A former middle school teacher in Carpentersville-based School District 300, who lives in Geneva, was charged with having sexual contact with a minor she knew, according to a news release from the Kane County State's Attorney's Office.
Lindsay P. Anderson, 26, of the 900 block of Foxwood Circle, Geneva, was charged Saturday with one count of criminal sexual assault and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, both felonies.
Anderson was released after posting $10,000 bail, 10 percent of the $100,000 bond that was set after appearing in bond court Sunday.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for June 4.
Prosecutors allege that between April 1 and May 8, Anderson had sexual contact with the victim and that Anderson knew the victim, who was younger than 18 at the time of the assault. When the victim's parents learned of the alleged assault, they contacted East Dundee Police, according to the statement.
Geneva police took Anderson into custody Friday, the day before she was charged.
Anderson recently had been employed at Carpentersville Middle School, according to prosecutors. According to the school's website, www.d300.org Anderson taught English as a second language, special education and math.
If convicted of the more serious charge, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, Anderson faces a sentence of between four and 15 years in prison.
The case remains under investigation. Police are asking anyone with additional information to call the Carpentersville Police Department at 847-551-3481 or the Kane County Child Advocacy Center at 630-208-5160.
