A Lombard woman is free on $50,000 bail after being accused of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a Glenbard East High School student.
Elizabeth Flint, 21, a volunteer intern at the high school, is charged with criminal sexual assault.
Prosecutors say Flint, of the 800 block of South Lalonde, assaulted the teen on three separate occasions in April at her home.
"The allegations against (Flint) are, simply put, disgusting," DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin said in a written statement. "It is alleged that she used her position of trust and authority to sexually assault a minor student on three separate occasions. This type of abhorrent behavior will not be tolerated."
The alleged assaults were uncovered when school personnel grew suspicious of Flint's behavior and alerted administrators. School authorities then contacted the DuPage County Children's Center.
"Although legal requirements prevent us from revealing specific information about this situation, we handled this matter with the utmost urgency and immediately followed all reporting and investigative protocols," Glenbard East Principal Shahe Bagdasarian wrote Saturday in an email.
Flint's next court date is set for June 4 in courtroom 4004.
