Christian Life teacher charged with having sex with minor www.privateofficer.com
Authorities say from November of last year through February of this year, Born had an inappropriate relationship with someone under the age of 18. Now, authorities are not yet confirming whether the child was a student at Christian Life or whether it was a male or female.
Parents at Christian Life have been notified of the incident via a letter. The principal of Christian Life says the alleged incident surfaced in March, which is when the part-time teacher was let go. While the principal says it was quote “A regretful incident” he and the Winnebago County State’s Attorney assure us that students are safe.
“In any cases involving children, obviously there’s a level of anxiety with parents, I myself being a parent, and what I can tell them is that administrators at the Christian Life schools, have done everything properly when this came to their attention by notifying the appropriate authorities.” Said Winnebago County Deputy State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross.
Born is charged with three counts of ‘criminal sexual assault, three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and three counts of indecent solicitation of a child. If born is convicted on all charges and counts he could spend more than 80 years in prison.
Born is still in the process of being transferred to Winnebago County. Officials say he’ll likely appear before a judge next week.
