Secretary Suspended

The recent arrest of Kassie M. Benton, 24, of Mount Zion, a secretary at Eisenhower High School in Decatur, has been an emotional roller coaster for parents with children. Benton told police she made sexual contact with a 17-year-old student who attended the school in February or March of 2018. The now 18-year-old victim confirmed the encounter. This type of behavior is jarring not only because of the age of the victim, but it also causes stomachs to turn because of the power dynamics between Benton and her victim; she was in a position of authority. A spokeswoman for the school released a statement Tuesday that Benton had been suspended from her job once the school had learned she was under investigation by police.
