Miss Kimberly Gersonde, a 24-year-old teacher’s aide from Wisconsin, reached a plea deal in a sexual assault case where she was accused of having sex with two 16-year-old boys in the school that employed her.
As a result of Miss Gersonde accepting the plea, four other charges were dropped.
The former St. Francis School District teacher’s aide is now a convicted felon.
According to the court records, Miss Gersonde met at the school with a first student, who will not be named, in the fall of 2015, when she was still employed by Kids Inc. to provide care for elementary school students.
She gave the boy a post-it note with her phone number on it and they communicated over the phone the whole of that year. According to the boy, they would only kiss and “nothing sexual happened until August of 2016.”
But then Miss Gersonde moved into a new apartment in Menomonee Falls, and the young boy admitted that he would go over to her house, and he “would occasionally spend the night over there.” They had sex at least twice in August, once more in September, and once more in October.
In all, according to the young boy’s count, they had sex “at least nine times.”
The boy then “attempted to break up with her but it was difficult and she began to continually pester him and call/text him constantly.” In the end, he decided to block her number.
A second victim, another 16-year old student at St. Francis High School, was at the same time also having sex with her in fact. The criminal complaint here included several text messages that they sent to each other in the end
Miss Gersonde: “They questioned me and I said ‘I’m done doing this,’ so I’m meeting with my lawyer tonight and I said ‘I quit’ today. I’m under investigation.”
Victim: “Did you delete the stuff?”
Miss Gersonde: “Yes, but I think they can still check what’s been deleted. I know I’m screwed. Maybe jail isn’t the worst thing in the world.”
After being investigated, the teacher’s assistant resigned from her position.
