Cassandra Sproch tried to force herself on teen boy
Cassandra Sproch, 43-year-old mother from Sewickley, Pennsylvania, has pleaded guilty to multiple misdemeanor sex and alcohol offenses involving male teen friends of her 14-year-old son.
Sproch, a former part-time dance and theater teacher at Propel Homestead K-8 campus, was sentenced by The Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge David R. Cashman to 18 months of probation.
Sproch’s then-14-year-old son told county police detectives he was at his mother’s Beaver Road home Nov. 15, 2009, when she arrived with three students, ages 13, 15 and 16, according to a police affidavit.
Sproch eventually began making dinner, poured each child a glass of wine and “encouraged them to drink,” the affidavit stated.
The boys told police Sproch got drunk and began “acting crazy.” When the teens went into another room to play video games, she called the 15-year-old boy upstairs, touched him and offered to have sex with him, police said.
The boy refused and went back downstairs. After “continued requests” by Sproch, the 16-year-old boy went upstairs. The other two boys followed and found Sproch and the boy in her bedroom, where Sproch was kissing him and had him “pinned against the bedroom wall,” police reported.
Sproch’s son and the other boy dragged the 16-year-old from the room and the teens left the home, the affidavit stated.
