Sparta PE teacher arrested for sexual conduct with teenager

A Physical Education teacher in Sparta is arrested on charges of inappropriate contact with a minor.

27-year-old Alexis Mashak is being charged with felony counts of child enticement, sexual assault of a child by a person who works with children, and two counts of exposing intimate parts to a child.

According to the complaint filed in court Thursday, Mashak had an ongoing sexual relationship with a 17-year-old who goes to school in the district, but wasn’t one of her students.

The two also worked together as employees of the Boys and Girls Club of Sparta.

The 17-year-old described the relationship as consensual and Mashak admitted to engaging in sex acts and sending nude photos.

She was released Thursday after posting a $1,000 cash bond.
