Former aide admits to sex acts with student 15 Dec 11

A former junior high teacher’s aide from Shakopee admitted in court yesterday to performing sexual acts on a male student in her car behind a Burnsville department store in 2009.

Michelle Rose Chlan, who was fired from the Shakopee School District this April, pleaded guilty in Dakota County District Court to felony third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Two charges involving similar alleged incidents in 2009 and 2010 will be dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

Chlan, now 27, met the teen at school and supervised one of his classes. She was accused of performing the sexual acts on him when he was 16 and 17.

Chlan’s jury trial was scheduled to begin Dec. 13 but was cancelled when she decided to plea. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 21.
