A 44-year-old teacher from Naperville, Illinois appeared in court on Sunday for allegedly sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy.
According to reports, Christine Taylor (no, not Ben Stiller‘s wife) invited the teenager — and his mother — over to her apartment on New Year’s Day to eat pizza.
Things got inappropriate around 9 p.m., when the language arts teacher convinced the victim’s mother to let him walk Taylor’s dog with her — but no dog-walking occurred!
Instead, the 44-year-old allegedly took the teen — who was not her student — into her bedroom and sexually abused him. The victim’s mother called police after catching Taylor sexually abusing the boy AND another resident of the teacher’s home.
The educator, who had been teaching at Jefferson Middle School for several years, faces one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. School District officials have placed Taylor on administrative leave and are launching an investigation.
We’re glad this predator was caught before causing harm to any more victims.
