LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — A former tutor at a northwest Indiana elementary school has been sentenced to 42 years in prison for molesting a boy over several years, starting when he was 10.
A Tippecanoe County judge suspended five years of Jennifer Holmgren’s sentence during Monday’s hearing.
A jury convicted the 42-year-old Holmgren in May of child molestation and inappropriate communication with a child.
Holmgren was a teacher’s aide at Klondike Elementary School in West Lafayette when she began molesting the boy when he was 10, the Journal & Courier reports. He was 14 when her sexual assaults came to light in 2019.
She had tutored the boy and his sister.
