Am I the only one who reads and watches local news wondering if I’ll see anyone I know? I do that all the time and let me tell you, it tends to freak you the fuck out when you find somebody.
A part-time counselor and educational assistant at a Brantford school for the visually impaired is facing charges of sexual offences relating to a 15-year-old student.
Brantford police say Alicia Swerdfiger befriended the male student at W. Ross MacDonald School and connected with the student on a social media website last October.
Since then, Swerdfiger allegedly started multiple sexually explicit conversations through text messages and sent two sexually explicit photographs of herself to the student.
Police say they do not believe there was a physical sexual relationship between Swerdfiger and the student.
I literally jumped when this came on TV yesterday.
I don’t know her well, though we have met. She was at my house not all that long ago. But somebody pretty close to her used to be one of my best friends back in school. Same school where what’s being alleged took place, in fact. I doubt he’s reading this, but I hope he’s doing ok right now. I’ll certainly be thinking of him.
