A 43-year-old Hokah woman accused of having intercourse with and performing oral sex multiple times on a 13-year-old boy was charged Tuesday with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Pamela Ann Fahy also resigned Tuesday from the La Crescent-Hokah School District, where she worked as a paraprofessional for nearly six years, and had two children removed from her foster home.
Fahy worked with special-needs students in preschool and elementary school grades. There have been no reports of any wrongdoing with the children she worked with, Wilke said.
Fahy was arrested Sunday after a man returned to his Winona County residence and saw her run out of his son’s bedroom naked from the waist down, according to court documents filed Tuesday in Winona County District Court.
During a 20-minute discussion with Fahy and the boy, the two admitted they had been having sex when he discovered them, at which point the man notified law enforcement, according to court records.
The boy subsequently told Winona County Sheriff’s Department investigators he and Fahy had been having sex for months in multiple locations in Winona and Wabasha counties, and Fahy also admitted to the behavior to investigators, according to court records.
Fahy was released Tuesday on $20,000 conditional bond and her next court appearance was set for later this month. If convicted, she could face a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and $30,000 in fines.
The sheriff’s department referred a first-degree charge of criminal sexual conduct on Sunday; the Winona County Attorney’s Office revised it Tuesday to the third-degree charge
