MADRAS, OR -- An educational assistant and track coach at Jefferson County Middle School is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student. Investigators were first made aware of the allegations in April, and 25-year-old Kristin Stickler was immediately put on administrative leave, barring her from any interaction with students.
A Grand Jury handed down an indictment last week, for one count of Online Sexual Corruption of a Child, four counts of first degree Sex Abuse, four counts of second degree Sex Abuse, one count of second degree Sodomy and one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.
Jefferson County Sheriff's Detectives worked with police in Madras and Bend, as well as Oregon State Police, to investigate the allegations and the the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office says the case remains open. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Jason Pollock or Detective Steve Webb at 541-475-2201.
