A Wisconsin para-professional will do jail time for exposing herself to a student.
Fox 11 News reports that Courtney Roznowski, 32, took a plea deal which allowed more serious charges, including three counts of sexual assault on a child, to be dropped. She pleaded guilty to exposing herself to a child and was given six months in jail.
According to court documents, Roznowski was accused of having sex with the student at Southwest High School, but most charges dropped since she was not under contract with Green Bay School District when the incident occurred.
“I accept responsibility for what I did, and I know what I did was wrong,” she said. “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.”
Roznowski previously admitted she had sex with the student at least twice, and reportedly claimed they loved each other.
Brown County Judge Donald Zuidmulder, who initially rejected the plea deal, told Roznoawski that she was the “nightmare of every parent” before ordering to turn around and look at the victim’s parents.
“Here’s what I want to tell you, Miss Roznowski: You’ve broken their hearts. And whatever punishment I impose on you, I assume that the humiliation and embarrassment you’ve caused your mother and father is more punishment that you will carry than what I could impose on you,” the judge added.
Court documents indicate that the victim also admitted to having sex with the teacher, claiming that it was every kid’s dream to do a teacher.”
In addition to six months in jail, Roznowski will serve three years of probation upon release. She also has to write an apology letter to the school and won’t be able to work around minors again.
