Gym Teacher Caught in Parked Car in Kohls Parking Lot With Boy, 16 – Ashley M. Blumenshine

Wow! They have everything at Kohls these days! You can–apparently–even pick up an underage boy to have sex with in a car parked in their parking lot. Now that’s what we call great customer service!  Ask you bored high school teacher/customers what they want, and it seems like they will tell you. Unfortunately, we don’t think the store can legally do that so now a Plainfield North High School (Illinois) gym/dance teacher is in trouble with the law tonight.

Here’s more from Trib Local:

A Plainfield North High School teacher accused of having sex with a 16-year-old boy has bonded out of the Will County Adult Detention Center and faces a court hearing on Jan. 26.  Will County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said today Ashley M. Blumenshine, 27, a physical education teacher, posted $7,500 bond around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Blumenshine, who also coaches girls gymnastics at the school,  has been ordered not to have unsupervised contact with anyone under age 18 after a judge set her bond Wednesday afternoon.  A substitute teacher will assume Blumenshine’s teaching duties and counseling services are available for students, said Plainfield District 202 spokesman Tom Hernandez.

Blumenshine, of Lisle, was charged with criminal sexual abuse after police say she allegedly had sex on Tuesday with the 16-year-old, who is a junior at Plainfield North, in a vehicle behind Kohl’s, 11860 S. Route 59.   Police chief Bill Doster said police approached the scene behind Kohl’s when they noticed two suspicious vehicles “at the end of the lot away from anything else.”

Will County Assistant States Attorney Mary Fillipitch stated at a bond hearing on Wednesday  that both Blumenshine and the 16-year-old boy, identified as E.L. in court documents, admitted to having sex. Filipitch said a condom was found at the scene.
