Former Jasper teacher's aide bound over for trial on sex charge

A former Jasper High School teacher's aide charged with statutory rape and statutory sodomy waived her preliminary hearing today and was bound over for trial.

The next hearing for Janice Lorene Rusk, 43, will be held 9 a.m. August 15.

Rusk was an aide in the special education department at Jasper High School at the time the crimes were allegedly committed.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Department began its investigation after being told by the Jasper Police Department of reports of sexual contact between Ms. Rusk and "several juvenile males," according to the probable cause statement.
