PARK TWP. — A long-term substitute teacher at West Ottawa High School had sex with a 16-year-old student at least twice and threatened to kill herself if he told, according to documentation from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office obtained by The Holland Sentinel.
Following a months-long investigation, the Sheriff’s Office announced charges against 50-year-old Jill Ann Edstrom in late October. Edstrom was arraigned Oct. 26 in 58th District Court by Judge Juanita Bocanegra for third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Her bond was set at $25,000 and was posted shortly after arraignment.
