A Michigan teacherâ€™s aide was charged Tuesday with engaging in oral sex with her daughtersâ€™ 15-year-old male friends, as well as supplying them alcohol.
41-year-old Bridget Caplin was busted after cops received an anonymous tip near the end of May.
The tip came in via an online site and just said a middle school teacher or teacher’s aide was having sex with teen students. The tipster didn’t provide the school that the alleged activity occurred at, but authorities got lucky on their first attempt by calling around the large school district. They discovered it was an employee at East Middle School.
The police started their investigation of Ms. Caplin soon thereafter. They went through the cellphones of the alleged teen victims, as well as the one belonging to Caplin.
One of the 15-year-old boys attended East Middle School, but wasn’t in any of the classes where Caplin was an aide. The other teen was a student at another location, West Middle School, at the time of the alleged misconduct.
Ms. Caplin was put on administrative leave very soon after the investigation started.
She was arrested on October 12th and charged with criminal sexual conduct third degree involving a person 13-15 years old, distributing obscene matter to children and using a computer to commit a crime.
She was arraigned on October 19th, and is being held in the Wayne County Jail on a $250,000 cash bond.
