Angela Stellwag, By State, Pennsylvania
We first heard about Angela Stellwag in 2006, the former substitute teacher has finally pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault. Looks like the judge is considering sentencing her to 6 years in prison, but will wait for the final decision until after he receives the pre-sentence reports. In addition to the prison sentence she will have to register as a sex offender, and will have restrictions on where she can live and work.
In exchange for her plea, three other counts of sexual assault and a count of endangering the welfare of a child will be dismissed, said Michael Luciano, a Burlington County assistant prosecutor.
Stellwag’s long-delayed trial on all the charges was scheduled to start today with jury selection. She had previously rejected the prosecutor’s plea offers. If convicted on all charges, she could have faced decades in prison.
In court Monday, Stellwag, through questioning from defense attorney John Sitzler, acknowledged that she met the 14-year-old while she was a substitute teacher at the Beverly City School in 2004. She admitted that during the last week in August 2004, after the boy had graduated from the school, she had sexual intercourse with him at her apartment.
