A 27-year-old teacher at Plainfiled North High School in Illinois is accused of having sex with a 16-year-old male student at the high school. The teacher was identified as Ashley Blumenshine. She was charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault. Blumenshine was described by former her students as an outstanding teacher. She taught physical education and dance. The two were caught by police in a parking lot behind a Kohl’s department store. According to police, a Plainfield officer noticed two cars suspiciously parked outside the department store – one was empty while the other had two people inside. After the officer approached the occupied car, the teen was in the back seat with only half his clothes on. Both the student and Blumenshine were taken into custody. Blumenshine allegedly had sex with the student in the parked care. Blumenshine’s duties have been taken over by a substitute at the high school. If convicted she could face probation or 3-7 years in prison. As part of her bond agreement, Blumenshine is not allowed to have contact with anyone under the age of 18-years-old with the exception of family members.
