Teacher's Aide Accused of Beginning Sexual Relationship With Student in 2010
The East Irondequoit teacher's aide arrested last week allegedly carried on a sexual relationship with a middle school student for nearly three years.
According to court paperwork, Jennifer Kennard, 46, is accused of having sexual intercourse six times and oral sex six times with the student in the basement of her Irondequoit home between June of 2010 and February 2013. She's charged with rape and criminal sexual act.
Kennard has been a teacher's aide at East Irondequoit Middle School since 2009.
Police said Kennard befriended the student and that's when the sexual relationship started. Police said the student was no longer under Kennard's supervision.
The school district says Kennard has been placed on administrative leave. She is currently being held on bail.
