Entertainment School Staffer Gets Jail for Sexually Abusing Boy, Telling Him He 'Deserved Special Things'
In scramble to reopen schools, after-school child care is often left out of the mix
Sending kids back to classrooms this fall is a decision many families are grappling with, but before- and after-school child care is another complicating factor in the equation, especially for parents who work outside the home. Christine Ens and her husband, Matt Miles, decided to send their daughter, Audrey, back to school in part because the only child has missed socializing with friends and classmates. However, Audrey, who is almost seven, won't be returning to her after-school program. "We were thinking about the risk and the exposure she would have," the Winnipeg mother said, noting that school alone will put the second-grader in a cohort of up to 75 people.
A 32-year-old Wisconsin school staffer who sexually abused a 16-year-old student — and told police she was going through “extensive personal issues” in her life at the time — has pleaded guilty.

Cheer's Monica Aldama Says She's 'Devastated' After Jerry Harris' Arrest
Jerry Harris was arrested on Thursday for allegedly producing child pornography . On Thursday, Harris, 21, was formally charged in Chicago, a statement from federal officials confirmed, alleging that he was arrested for "allegedly enticing an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself." Harris, the statement alleges, "contacted the underage boy on a social media application and repeatedly enticed him to produce sexually explicit videos and photographs of himself and send them to Harris, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago.
Roznowski was initially charged with three counts of sexual assault of a student by a school staffer and two counts of exposing intimate parts to a child for sexually abusing a 16-year-old student in 2019.
However, the three more serious charges were eventually dropped because the then-31-year-old was not actually a Green Bay School District employee when she had sex with the student, Fox11 reports.
During her sentencing hearing, Roznowski told the court she had turned her life around since being arrested.
″I know what I did was wrong,” she said, according to Fox11. “While I did not initiate the relationship, I should have put an end to it once I realized that the messages being sent to me were from a student at the school. Please have it in your heart to see the good in me. Have me keep working, have me keep seeing my counselor, have me be around my family daily. Overall, I hope my actions for the last 13 months have shown you how serious I have and will continue to take this.”

However, Judge Donald Zuidmulder called Roznowski ″the nightmare of every parent."
"You are, frankly, the nightmare of every parent. Because what a parent assumes is that their child is in a safe environment with trusting people. But I have to tell you I am unimpressed by your comments about ‘a good heart.’ You drove over there. It doesn’t have anything to with the heart,” he said.
