A high school physical education teacher will spend 10 years on the Illinois sex offender registry after she was caught having sex with a student in the parking lot of a Kohl's department store.
Ashley Blumenshine, 30, apologized between sobs as she pleaded guilty on Friday, according to Patch. The former Plainfield North teacher was sentenced to 30 days in jail but will only have to serve 11.
"I will forever be humbled and remorseful for my actions," she said as she was handcuffed and led out of the courtroom Friday morning.
She met up with the unidentified 16-year-old victim at the Plainfield Kohl's in January 2011, and had sex with him in the back of the car. The two had texted to set up the rendezvous, and had been in a relationship for about a month.
Police reportedly noticed two cars parked alone together in the lot, and found the two "attempting to get dressed" in the back seat of one of the vehicles, a prosecutor told Patch. Blumenshine admitted at the time that the two had sex.
Police also found a used condom in the car.
The court heard excerpts from a letter Blumenshine wrote in January 2012, detailing her regrets about the incident.
"In my wildest dreams I never would have thought that this turn of events would have happened to me," Blumenshine wrote. "Somewhere within a few months time, I lost Ashley."
She apologized to the court and promised not to make the same mistake again. An earlier charge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse was knocked down to traveling to meet a minor, CBS Chicago reports.
