A Catholic teacher from Millerstown, Pennsylvania, Randi Zurenko, has been charged with over two hundred charges relating to affairs she had with two of her students. She has been charged with 13 counts of institutional sexual assault, 153 of sexual abuse of children, 33 of unlawful contact with minors, 20 of dissemination of obscene material to a minor and 13 counts of corruption of minors.
The first girl she had a relationship with for nearly two years, starting with an encounter in a park where Zurenko massaged her and undid her bra, while plying her with alcohol. After that girl graduated, she hooked up with a second girl, with whom she had sex with many times in several different places, including her home. She sent her nude pictures and took pictures of the girl as she was undressing. She also took pictures of them while they were having sex.
‘During the course of the interview Zurenko admitted to providing both victim 1 and victim 2 alcohol while they were students at Bishop McDevitt.
‘She also admitted that, while employed as a teacher at Bishop McDevitt High School, she had a sexual relationship with victim 2, a current student at the school.
‘Zurenko also admitted to taking nude photographs of victim 2,’ a statement released by the District Attorney’s Office said.
‘Many of the charges relate to what we call sexual abuse of children or child pornography,’ District Attorney Sean McCormack later told WGAL.
The school placed her on administrative leave in response to the investigation.
