LONDON - A 27-year-old teacher at Plainfield North High School, Illinois, has been arrested for allegedly having sex with one of her own teenage students.
Ashley Blumenshine was arrested behind a department store in Plainfield after police caught her in a car with the boy aged 16. Police believe that they had had sex shortly before the officers arrived, reports the Daily Mail.
The boy told police their relationship, which officers believe may have gone on for over a month, blossomed in her car.
Blumenshine is being held in custody charged with having sex with the student but her attorney claimed she is innocent.
She taught dance and physical education at the school for four years and is known for her popularity. The boy is a junior at the school.
“I remember she’s a really nice lady,” said Michael Deland, a Plainfield North High School graduate.
Assistant Will County State’s Attorney Mary Fillipitch said both occupants admitted they had just engaged in consensual sexual intercourse.
A condom was taken as evidence from the vehicle. (ANI)
