A Geneva woman, formerly employed with Algonquin-based School District 300, pleaded guilty on Friday to sexually assaulting two underage boys, according to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Kane County Circuit Judge Donald Tegeler Jr. accepted 31-year-old Lindsey P. Anderson’s guilty plea the offenses of criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Anderson faces between four and 22 years and prison and must register for life as a sex offender, according to the release.
Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Lori Schmidt said during the plea hearing that between July 2013 and May 2015, Anderson sexually assaulted the boys, who she knew were underage, while employed at Carpentersville Middle School. Anderson was not the victims’ teacher at the time of the assaults.
“As a teacher, she was in a position of authority and clearly knew that what she did was wrong and harmful to these children,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said in the release. “Her felony conviction and upcoming prison sentence should send a clear message of the consequences of this type of behavior.”
Anderson is due back in court 1:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Kane County Judicial Center for sentencing.
