Reading Pennsylvania middle school science teacher arrested for sexual abuse

Jessica Saienni - Berks County Pennsylvania - Reading PA

Reading, Pennsylvania middle school science teacher Jessica Saienni was arrested on Friday on charges of sexually abusing a 14-year-old student, reports

Saienni, 30, taught science at Southwest Middle School during the summer of 2012.

Police say she called and texted the student after a field trip to Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, a local amusement park. She got his cell number from a parental permission slip for the trip.

Saienni and the student agreed to meet on a special day in June. It was the boy’s 14th birthday. They cleaned her classroom together and ate some birthday cake purchased by the teacher.

By the third meeting, the two had sex — in Saienni’s vehicle not far from the Body Zone Sports and Wellness Complex.

There were also the requisite sexting sessions before the encounter.

The unidentified boy provided a description of Saienni’s home and an elaborate description of the tattoos on her lower back and thigh. These descriptions will likely be part of the case against the middle school teacher.
