GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Former Catholic school tutor Abigail Simon was found guilty Wednesday of sexually assaulting a teenage student.

Simon, 35, was found guilty on four of the five charges against her, three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of accosting a minor for immoral purposes.

She was accused of having an ongoing sexual relationship with a then-15-year-old boy.  The victim is now 17.

During the course of her trial, both Simon and the teen took the stand.  Simon's attorney argued that she was the victim.

She could face up to life in prison and will be sentenced at a later date.

    That is one reason we should not import thugs to the catholic schools for better sports program. I know for fact they do this. It makes for bad schools for kids that truly care. So stop this lady will suffer do to some imported looser. I don’t need to pull race card because everyone knows.

    Wow, YUP, not sure what you were listening to for the last couple of weeks, but get your facts straight. Ms. Simon’s attorney also needs to watch what he says. Came across sounding like a spoiled bad loser. How many times did dear old daddy get Ms. Simon off on her bad deeds???
