Teacher Sarah L. Tolzien Accused Of Sex With 16-Year-Old

Sarah L. TolzienSarah L. Tolzien, an English teacher and cross country coach at Rich South High School in Richton Park, IL, has been charged with felony sexual assault for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student.

Ms. Tolzien, 24, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old male student that she was coaching.  The assaults in question appear to have happened back on November 14th and 17th of 2008 when she drove the student home from practice.  The parents contacted the police on December 1st, 2008, and evidence indicates that the relationship had been carrying on since October of 2008.

While the news only came to light, Ms. Tolzien has been on administrative leave from the school since December, when the investigation started.  Charges were filed against her on Tuesday.  She had a bail set of $10,000, and she is due to appear in court on April 15th at the Cook County courthouse in Markham.

Although the actual crimes took place in 2008, I am adding here to the ever increasing list of teacher sex scandals for 2009 as she wasn’t booked by the police until this week.  This brings us to the fifth story/sixth teacher so far this year.

UPDATE 01/20/10: The student has now filed a lawsuit against both Sarah Tolzien and the school district.

UPDATE 05/01/10: Sarah L. Tolzien Sentenced

This women now joins the roll call of teacher sex scandals for 2009!

    Sara Tolzien is one of the Greatest, Thoughtful, and educated women to ever walk this earth. And how dare you post her personal information that is none of your business.. She did not have sex with that immature, arrogant, adolesent boy.! Mind your Business!

    • knew her

      Actually Lavell, I knew her in college and this is exactly what we all predicted would happen when she got her teaching job at a high school. This came as no surprise to any of us who actually knew her. It's not like this boy went to the authorities, his parents found messages from Sarah on his phone! How do you defend that?? She had her parents fooled that she was an angel and a virgin (haha) but she slept around like it was her job. The turquise purity ring that she wore was a joke and a slap in the face to her parents. Now they can finally see the true Sarah Tolzien.

    I am sorry you feel this way, but as I stated she has been "accused". She is indeed innocent until proven guilty, but considering there has been a lengthy investigation, and she as only arrested this week, that says there has to at least be some evidence against her. It still doesn't prove she is guilty, but it does mean there has to be something there for them to have taken this step.

    I am also merely reporting what numerous other sources have also reported, so I am not making some random target out of Ms. Tolzien.

  • she’s hot

    i would f*** her if i was 16…actually i’d f*** her now

    To "KNEW HER"…. you're an idiot. I knew her in college too, and yes she had the purity ring, but thats her business, not yours. I'd like to meet you so I can publically judge you and your family.
    I don't know if she's guilty or not, but she's a really nice person and she worked very hard in college. She may have screwed up, and she deserves what she gets for it, but regardless, she was a genuinely nice person. She wasn't perfect, but who is? I hate to hear about what she did, but I also hate to see her career and reputation ruined for irresponsible (but consenual) sex.

    • Saylorscreek

      What about "age of consent" do you not understand? "Age of consent" relates to the ability to truly know the ramifications of the behavior you are consenting to perform. If a 16 year old is not considered by law to have the cognitive capacity to understand the ramifications of the act, then the sex is NOT con-sensual ("with mutual consent"). Age aside, one cannot be considered to be able to truly consent freely if an unequal power relationship exists (as with a teacher or boss). Being a nice person doesn't mean you can't make ignorant choices about sexual relationships–"nice" people do it all the time. Just because they are nice doesn't mean they do the right thing. This person did not do the right thing–she did an illegal thing and is therefore at the judgement of the law.

      • CONCERNED

        SHE HAD SEX WITH HER STUDENT!!!
        WRONG IN SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY WAYS!
        FIND A GUY YOUR OWN AGE!
        F ONE OF YOU MANY DOGS YOU HAVE
        GROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
        GROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
        GROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
        SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF!

      • aimee

        I completely agree with you Saylorscreek. I am not by any means saying that she was right. I was just pointing out that I think this person who calls themself "Concerned" is far out of line, especially by insulting Sarah's mom and writing inappropriate thing insulting others comments. If they can't have a civil conversation, then they should stay just be quite. They sound so ignorant. They have nothing constructive or sensible to add.

      • aimee

        Saylorscreek, I agree with you. Its completely inappropriate to have sex with a 16 year old, and especially a student. 8 years isn't a huge age difference as an adult, but when one of the ages is 16, its definitely a big deal. Sarah will get what she deserves. I'm sure she realizes now that it wasn't worth throwing her career away… as well as her freedom possibly if she ends up in jail. People screw up, and she messed up big time, but I still hate to see all the horrible things that are being written about her. I don't know the boy involved, but I can't help but wonder if he is traumatized or is loving all this attention? Afterall, if he thinks like most 16 year old boys do, I'm sure he's loving this. I am only assuming, I could very well be wrong. I hope the media covers more when her trial starts up (does anyone know when that is?) I'm curious to see if she gets convicted, and if so for how long.

  • CONCERNED

    SHE TALKED ABOUT SLEEPING WITH THIS 16YEAR OLD WITH A CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE….
    SHE DID IT PEOPLE
    SHE DID!!!!!
    24 SLEEPING WITH A 16 YEAR OLD IS SOOOOOOO UP HER ALLEY!!!!!

  • RSHS X-CNTRY GRAD

    ok wow this is crazy…i know this boy and ran cross country with him for a year! Fortunately I graduated a year before this incident but nevertheless I know him and he knew what he was doing…he is mature for his age and extremely handsome…he tried to get with me. But his coy ways would fool you, he may be quiet with that gorgeous smile of his but he is going! He willingly had sex with this woman whom i've never met and sad to say for her he probably started the flirting!

  • Lavell Brown

    Thank You, Finnaly someone Who knew the Boy as well as I do. And Understands how old he "really" is he may be 17 on the outside, but that is besides the point.
    I just hate the fact that i'll never see Ms. Tolzien again.
    If you Knew him and was ok with his Personality during Cross country.
    Then you would have loved last year's team, and Coach T.
    Trust me, I was in it.
    PS. Has anyone Heard the Verdict?

  • J_B

    I know the Tolzien family very well. First off, Sarah does sleep around. Her whole family consists of fake Christians who want to show the whole world that they are "pure" but it's completely false–well at least for the Tolzien children. A purity ring?! I can't help but laugh…really, really hard. Sarah is such a whore. I'm glad that the whole world is finally going to know the truth. Furthermore, she's also rude and a douchebag. I'm personally glad she got caught and I don't doubt it for a minute her guilt in this act. haha. and yeah, fuck Kathy Tolzien!!!; her daughter Sarah takes after her fat ass. the dogs are great though; Leo, Sammy, and Koters…I feel sorry that you're stuck in that house with all the crazies.

  • Lavell

    What ever problem you had with Sara. You need not start talking about it now. If you truly did know her then you whould know how great a person she is.

    So you need to just Shut up, mind your own business, and keep what ever personal, cruel thoughts inside that head of yours'. Because they are not welcomed here.

    You're Pathetic

  • J_B

    First off, we are in a free country and the great part about that is that I can voice my opinion and you can voice yours. And Sarah is spelled with an "h."

    PS. what would SaraH think of you sentence structure and grammar in that post?

    Here's how it should look:

    What ever problem you had with Sarah, you need not start talking about it now. If you truly did know, her then you would know how great a person she is.

    So you need to just shut up, mind your own business, and keep what ever personal, cruel thoughts inside that head of yours–because they are not welcomed here.

    You're pathetic.

    Hope that helps. Have a great weekend my dear :)

    • Lavell

      "First off", grammer is really not the largest problem right now. My anger towards you was overcoming my "good grammer".

      So I don't need your criticism, because that has nothing to do with anything!

      As I have said before, (now it is just proven),

      You're pathetic.

      I hope you had a good weekend too! :)

    • QueenOfArts

      lulz. u completely pwned Lavell. LAMO.

      • AmyPinker

        Lavel, it seems like ur grammar has suffered in ALL ur posts. i agree: PWNED!

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/seanpaune Sean P. Aune

      J.B. – Speaking as the person who owns this site, I will determine what is and is not welcome here, thank you.

      By the way, you realize you said :

      "First off, we are in a free country and the great part about that is that I can voice my opinion and you can voice yours."

      and followed this up with:

      "So you need to just shut up, mind your own business…"

      Why do I feel like I'm reading one of those "One of these things is not like the other" cartoons?

      • J_B

        that was me rewriting Lavell's post as to how it should have been typed. You should read Lavell's and then read mine. shut up and mind ur own business was lavell's comment to me. and deciding what is welcome here…take that up with levall because they are the one that said it.

        thanks. please reread bc my post was after lavell's and i was quoting levall in all the stuff you called me on.

      • J_B

        That was me rewriting Lavell's post as to how it should have been typed. You should read Lavell's and then read mine. "Shut up and mind ur own business" was Lavell's comment to me–and "deciding what is welcome here"…take that up with Lavell because they are the one that said it.

        And furthermore, please apologize for being rude to me when it was actually Lavell that was being a douche.

        Thanks.

  • J_B

    Pathetic is defined as "feeling pity toward another person"…So if you find the need to pity me, I'm okay with that :)

  • XHERSEYX

    I agree with "knew her" and "J_B." I knew her too and she is what they say unfortunately.

  • aimee

    This is getting a little out of control. We all seem to have known her, but have mixed feelings about her… understandably so. But on to the important stuff…. does anyone know what happened since her last court date or when her next court date is? There hasn't been any recent news about her.

    • Lavell

      Yeah, I would like to know what happened. Ever since this all happened, it's like she just dropped from the map.

  • Tiffany

    ummm excuse me ms. brown but how exactly would you know all of this? No she did not have sex with the student, but im pretty sure that if she did not get caught that it would have went that far. As a student at richsouth high school i have witnessed ms.tolzien in action and she is quite flirtatious with the boys who attended our school, so yes i do think that these accusations fits her well, and honestly i believe she should become a registered sex offender.

    just curious… was the kid black, cuz i think i know him
