A teacher's aide has been arrested and charged with performing sex acts on two male high school students.
Sheri Maufort, 42, of Chester County, Pennsylvania, was arraigned on several charges including sexual assault, corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of a child, the Daily Mail reports.
Maufort is a married mother of two, and worked as a substitute teacher’s aide for Unionville High School. The two victims are reportedly both students at Unionville.
Police say Maufort gave the first boy alcohol and drove him to a field where she performed oral sex on him, before having her husband drive the boy home. Police have yet to explain why the husband arrived to escort the boy home.
"We're not quite sure how this happened, but the defendant's husband showed up at the restaurant and at the end of the day, ended up giving the victim a ride home," Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan told reporters.
Maufort allegedly told the teen not to tell anyone what had happened, and to call her when he turned 18.
The second incident occurred roughly three weeks later, after a high school football game, where police say Maufort picked up another student -- who was over 18 -- from a house party after the game, and drove him to a second location where she kissed him and groped his genitals.
Maufort works for a company that provides substitute teachers, teacher’s aides and administrative staff to local schools. She also has a previous arrest for theft as a juvenile and a driving under the influence charge as a 26-year-old.
Her attorney, Lloyd Long III, claims the former charges have no bearing in this case.
"My client, like a great number of people, has had issues with the law as a juvenile and a very young woman. She has lived a law abiding life and raised a decent family," he said.
Maufort was unable to make bail during her initial hearing, which she exited while covering her face with a coat, reports WPVI. She is due back in court on Nov. 28. A judge has ordered her not to contact the two alleged victims.
