A teacher’s aide at Beloit’s Richardson School has been arrested on sex and drug charges.
Police allege that 45-year-old Scott Swanson, who is an Illinois resident, exposed himself to a 17-year-old with behavioral and mental health disabilities. Police say he also had methamphetamine in his possession when he was arrested on Monday morning.
Swanson faces charges of Lewd and Lascivious Behavior, Exposing Genitals to a Child, Possession of Meth and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
He is being held in the Rock County Jail pending his arraignment on Tuesday.
Police were assisted by the Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children Agency, and they add the school has been fully cooperative and no evidence of any other crimes has been found.
