Ex-Teacher Facing Student Sex Charge Pleads Not Guilty

CHICAGO (CBS) — A former suburban high school teacher accused of having sex with a student had entered a not guilty plea.

Ashley Blumenshine, 27, was a teacher at Plainfield North High School. She was arrested behind a Kohl’s department store at 11860 S. Route 59 in Plainfield earlier this month, when police caught her in a car with a 16-year-old boy and determined that they’d had sex shortly before the officers arrived.

She is charged with sexual abuse and is free on bond. She appeared in Will County court with her attorney on Wednesday.

Blumenshine has resigned. The school district is also taking steps to revoke her teaching certificate.

She had taught dance and physical education at the school for four years.

When Blumenshine was arrested, police noticed two vehicles in the parking lot were sitting much farther out from the store than other vehicles in the lot.

They found one vehicle was empty, and the other contained Blumenshine and the boy, who was partially unclothed.

    Look, there’s no denying she broke the law here. But,holy Toledo is she hot!!! I only wish I had a teacher that hot in high school. Especially the gym teachers. Ugh!

  • Old Sports Dude

    I agree Tom that she is HOT! They should give her probation. I bet the kid enjoyed her.

  • Dan

    Here’s the other side of the story-wait and see. The victim will probably sue the school district (meaning the local taxpayers) due to severe emotional trauma and stress. The school district will probably settle out of court to keep things quiet since they probably had sex in school too.

    • KE

      You are absolutely correct Dan.
      That is the way it generally works.

  • Bernice Sitko-Feltz

    I am very upset about this happening to a fellow teacher, how dare that young man think he could take that poor teacher for a ride without a note from his parents. I fear the future of education may be compromised if teachers can longer tutor at risk students. We mock what we dont understand. I have tenure and I can do all the students I choose to.

    • Sean Guerin

      I agree with you Bernince, I also have tenure and feel that I have earned the right to choose my own at risk students, which are always under 16 and look like a young Brad Pitt. I didnt become a teacher for the summers off and the free coffee. Thanks for being honest. Sean Guerin
