Full Story:A 31-year-old Geneva woman faces prison after admitting to sexually assaulting and abusing two of her former students from Carpentersville Middle School.
Lindsay P. Anderson, of the 900 block of Foxwood Drive, pleaded guilty late last week to one count each of criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse, both felonies, according to Kane County prosecutors and court records.
According to prosecutors, Anderson sexually assaulted two male students between July 2013 and May 2015. Anderson knew both victims from when she was employed at Carpentersville Middle School but was not their teacher when the assaults took place, prosecutors said.
According to court records, the victims were 14 and 15 at the time of the attacks.
Anderson also worked as a coach at Dundee-Crown High School. She taught at Community Unit District 300 through September 2014.
"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."
