Former Carpentersville teacher accused of sex assault now getting treatment
A former Carpentersville Middle School teacher accused of sexually assaulting two former students is getting drug treatment while her case is pending, according to court records.
Lindsay P. Anderson, 27, of Geneva, was charged in May 2015 with the sexual assault and abuse of one of her former students, 15, who was then a high school freshman, from April 2015 through May 7, 2015.
A grand jury later indicted her on charges she sexually assaulted and abused another former student from July 2013 through May 2015, records show.
Anderson was a teacher at the Community Unit District 300 school through September 2014.
According to Kane County court records, Anderson presented Judge D.J. Tegeler late last week with a proof of "hospitalization and current day program treatment." She also was ordered June 3 to undergo drug treatment, records show.
Anderson's defense attorney, Peter Buh, could not immediately be reached for comment Monday.
Anderson is accused of having sex with one of the boys at the Raceway Woods Forest Preserve in Carpentersville, according to a police affidavit used to obtain a search warrant of her husband's Jeep. Anderson also gave recorded statements to police, according to an affidavit, in which she admitted to having sex with the 15-year-old and a 14-year-old on separate occasions in January and February 2015.
Anderson also was charged two months ago with filing a false police report over purchases on her debit card, according to court records and Geneva police.
Police said Anderson claimed $1,217 of purchases made by a friend with her card were unauthorized, but detectives investigated and concluded she had given him permission to use the card.
If convicted of criminal sexual assault of a minor while in the position of trust and authority, she faces a punishment ranging from probation to 15 years in prison and registration as a sex offender. She also faces charges of grooming, child endangerment and indecent soliticiation of a minor, records show.
If convicted in the false police report case, she faces anywhere from probation to three years in prison.
