Married female teacher accused of touching girl, 12, on bum in front of class

A married teacher allegedly slid her hand down a 12-year-old’s back and cupped the student’s butt in front of her school friend.

Christy Mathis, an art teacher at Mosinee Middle School in Marathon County, is facing prison time after a student accused her of sexual assault.

The student, a 12-year-old female, told police Mathis slid her hand down her back and touched her bum in class.

Assistant District Attorney Hannah Boeck said the child then looked at her fellow classmates and asked: "Did that just happen?"

Other students then allegedly verified the incident to police, who arrested Mathis on suspicion of sexual assault on Monday April 5.

Mathis, who has no criminal history, is married and has two children and has lived in the area for over 25-years.

She has not been fired from her position but will soon meet with school officials to discuss her contract and possible retirement.

Marathon County Circuit Judge Michael Moran set Mathis’ bond at $10,000 (£7247.55).

The first $5,000 (£3623) of that bond must be in cash, the Judge said, before scheduling Mathis court appearance for April 23.
