Ex-stripper turned teacher's aide busted for sex party

Sex education gone too far?

The Associated Press is reporting that 33 new charges have been filed against stripper-turned-teacher's aide in western Pennsylvania.

The former teacher's aide, Abbiejane Swogger, was already facing charges of allowing teens to party in her hotel room. She is now charged with stripping for teens and having sex with at least two boys, according to the wire service.

Swogger, 34, is facing a May 1 court date in Allegheny County.

The former exotic dancer is charged with 33 counts, including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault and corruption of minors, for incidents in January, according to the AP. The charges stem from a police raid of a New Kensington hotel room party in February that resulted in crack cocaine possession and corruption of minors charges, the AP says.

In court documents, police say a 17-year-old boy acknowledged having a sexual relationship with Swogger for several weeks starting in January, the AP reports. Swogger is also accused of performing a sex act on a 16-year-old boy at his house about three weeks before the New Kensington party, the wire service says.

Swogger is also accused of stripping for three adults and three boys on Jan. 18 at the residence of a 15-year-old boy, the wire service says. Police say marijuana was used at that time and that Swogger allowed the men and boys to touch her inappropriately, the AP is reporting.

Swogger remains in the Westmoreland County Jail unable to post $50,000 bond, according to online court records.

How extensive are the background checks performed on people who work with children? Wouldn't you think that putting "exotic dancer" on your resume might have given school officials second thoughts about hiring someone?
