A primary school teacher has been sentenced to five years in prison for sexually assaulting an 11-year-old pupil because she wanted to make the "chronically depressed" boy “happy”.Katherine Gonzalez, 25, from Wisconsin in the US, was arrested on 5 March and charged with one count of first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.
I came across this site while searching for an answer to the pain that I am feeling.According to the criminal complaint, the victim told police he and Ms Gonzalez had been communicating over Snapchat before she picked him up in her car, which is when the assaults took place.The two touched each other's private parts through their clothes, prosecutors said at the time.He always had a way of making me believe everyone else was lying.He would tell me he’d be home in a little while and he wouldn’t show up for hours on end.He moved into my house and started paying the mortgage, while I paid all the other bills.
He showered me with love, flowers and other pricey gifts and this went on for about 6 moths.
Although the relationship between Ms Gonzalez and the student never escalated to sexual intercourse, Judge Mark Sanders said it warranted a serious sentence in order to teach others to exercise better judgement.
During her sentencing on Tuesday, Ms Gonzalez tearfully apologised, saying her actions had been “unthinkable”.
Hysterical with tears, I frantically tried to get a hold of him and when I did, I was told to calm down that he would be there soon.
When he got there he explained that he loved me but he was confused.
On Mother’s Day he told me that he loved me so much and he couldn’t wait to marry me and make me a mother someday.
