A former employee of Community Unit School District 300 faces charges alleging she had sexual contact with a minor she knew.

Recently employed at Carpentersville Middle School, Lindsay P. Anderson, 26, of the 900 block of Foxwood Circle, Geneva, is charged with one count of criminal sexual assault, a Class 1 felony, and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony.

Anderson worked as a bilingual teacher at District 300 schools, according to her LinkedIn profile. She worked there from May 2013 to August 2014, the profile indicates.

Prosecutors allege that between April 1 and May 8, Anderson had sexual contact with a victim she knew who was younger than 18 at the time of the assault, a statement from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office said.

The East Dundee police were contacted by the victim’s parents after they learned of the alleged assault.

If convicted of the most serious charge, Anderson faces between four and 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. She also would have to register as a sexual offender for life.

Anderson was taken into custody by Geneva Police on Friday and charged Saturday. She appeared Sunday in Kane County Bond court where her bail was set at $100,000.

Anderson posted $10,000 and was released, but as a condition of her bond, Anderson cannot have any direct or indirect contact with the victim, cannot go within 150 feet of the victim’s residence, and cannot have unsupervised contact with any child younger than 18 who is not an immediate family member. The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information about it should call Carpentersville police at 847-551-3481 or the Kane County Child Advocacy Center at 847-551-3481.
