Former Jasper High School aide to be sentenced Monday on sex charge
Sentencing for former Jasper High School teacher's aide Janice Rusk, who pleaded guilty January 12 to felony charges of statutory rape and statutory sodomy in connection with a sexual relationship with a student is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday before Judge David Dally in Jasper County Circuit Court.
A pre-sentencing investigation for Rusk, 43, was turned in to the court on February 27.
An exchange of text messages led to the sexual liaison between the teacher's aide and a high school boy, according to the probable cause statement.
