A former Carpentersville Middle School teacher was charged Monday with criminal sexual assault after allegedly having sexual contact with a minor, according to The Chicago Tribune.
Lindsay P. Anderson, 26, of Geneva, is a former Community Unit School District 300 employee. She 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.
According to a release from the Kane County state’s attorney’s office, Anderson had sexual contact with the victim between April 1 and May 8.
After learning of the alleged assault, the victim’s parents contacted East Dundee police.
Anderson was arrested May 15 and was appeared in Kane County bond court on Sunday where bail was set at $100,000.
She was released after posting $10,000 bond. Her next court appearance is for June 4 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
As a condition of her bond, Anderson cannot have any direct or indirect contact with the youth, cannot go within 150 feet of the youth’s residence, and cannot have unsupervised contact with any child younger than 18 who is not a member of her immediately family, officials said.

Student safety is of the utmost importance. It is my hope that law enforcement thoroughly investigates and all allegations are being addressed.
