Plainfield Gym Teacher in Teen Sex Case to Have Last Pretrial Hearing

Former Plainfield North High School physical education teacher Ashley Blumenshine's final pretrial hearing was set Tuesday.

Two years and 26 days after she was allegedly caught partially clothed in her car with a similarly undressed teenage boy, former Plainfield North High School teacher Ashley Blumenshine will appear for what is supposed to be her final pretrial hearing.

Judge Amy Bertani-Tomczak set a Jan. 30 court date for Blumenshine with her trial on a charge of criminal sexual assault to follow, barring a plea deal.

Blumenshine, 29, taught physical education and dance at Plainfield North until resigning in the wake of the January 2011 sex scandal. She was also a coach for the girls' golf and gymnastics teams.

The Plainfield police allegedly found Blumenshine and a 16-year-old Plainfield North student sitting in her car, which was parked near the back of the Kohl's on Route 59. The pair reportedly admitted to the police that they had just had sex and were involved in an ongoing sexual relationship.

She's living a well rounded life? Ha! She's a sex offender, pedophile, child rapist... However you look at it. She's unstable as can be. No mercy for anyone who prays on our impressionable children. Anyone who defends her actions is just as big a disgrace.
