A former teacher’s aide was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of having a sexual relationship with a John Adams Academy student in Roseville.
Katelyn Bernadette Foley, 21, was booked into South Placer County Jail charges of contacting a minor with intent to commit a crime, committing an act of sexual penetration and oral copulation of a minor – two felonies and a misdemeanor. She was released the same day on bail, according to jail records.
John Adams Academy is a K-12 charter school with campuses in Roseville, El Dorado Hills and Lincoln, according to the school website. In a letter to parents, Headmaster Heather Brown said Foley had been placed on leave during a school investigation before resigning.
School officials found inappropriate messages exchanged between Foley and the victim, who KCRA3 reported was a secondary school student. After officials concluded Foley had sex with a minor, she met with Roseville Police Department detectives at a department office Wednesday before being arrested.
