Ex-intern accused of sexual assault gets probation
A woman who was a volunteer high school intern when she was accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student pleaded guilty Friday in DuPage County to a misdemeanor battery charge, according to court records.
In a negotiated plea, Elizabeth Flint, 22, of Lombard, admitted guilt to the reduced charge in return for prosecutors dropping felony sex assault counts lodged against her in May 2018.
She has been placed on two years of probation and ordered to serve 10 days on the DuPage County sheriff ’s work program detail.
Flint, who was working as a volunteer intern at Glenbard East High School, was charged last year after authorities said she sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student in April 2018 at the student’s home.
