Teacher Grinds To A Fault

MARCH 21--Meet Kelly Sweet.

The eighth grade teacher, 26, is facing a felony rap for an alleged sexual encounter with a 14-year-old boy in her Milwaukee apartment earlier this month. As noted in a Circuit Court criminal complaint, the Deer Creek Intermediate School teacher was watching a movie with the boy on March 9 when she initiated illicit contact while the pair was seated on her couch (Sweet had been resting her head on the boy's lap). The charged assault involved Sweet allegedly 'grinding her pubic mound' against the victim.

The educator, pictured here in a Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office mug shot, was named in a March 20 criminal information charging her with sexual assault of a child. If convicted, Sweet could face a maximum of 40 years behind bars. (3 pages)
