A 27 tear old female dance teacher in Plainfield, Illinois is accused of having sex with her 16 year old student.
Ashley Blumenshine was arrested behind a department store in Plainfield, Illinois, after police caught her in a car with the teen.
Police believe that they had had sex shortly before the officers arrived.
The high school teacher is being held in custody charged with having sex with the student. Her attorney said she is innocent.
She taught dance and physical education at Plainfield North High School for four years and is known for her popularity. The boy is a junior at the school.
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.
The following day, the Will County State’s Attorney’s office charged Blumenshine with aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
The article says the affair had been going on for about a month. The kid is 16. The age of consent in Illinois is generally 17, but in this case it’s 18 since she is “a person of authority or trust” over him. Of course, by the time he’s 18 he will become magically transformed from someone who is incapable of consenting to sex to someone who is actively encouraged by the government to become cannon fodder in some god forsaken desert on the other side of the planet.
I wonder what would have happened if they had both kept their mouths shut. I hope the kid refuses to testify. Without knowing anymore than what’s in the article, I would venture to say he has not been injured in the least by the affair but will suffer substantial guilt if they force him to assist in destroying this teacher’s life. I would probably regret it for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, kids are steeped in the propaganda of sex hysteria and the idea that cops and prosecutors are always the good guys.
