Educational Service Center Employee Arraigned

(Cuyahoga County) - A sign language interpreter for the Parma City Schools faced a judge today, accused of sexual misconduct. 

Police say 25-year-old Ashley Mason had inappropriate contact with a Parma High School student several times over the past month.  

Mason is charged with sexual battery. The city prosecutor claims she had sex with a 14 year old student at the Metroparks Big Creek Parkway. 

Mason appeared in Parma Muncipal Court wearing a blue jail jumpsuit. 

Defense attorney Patrick Leary asked for and received a low bond, maintaining that his client had never been in a trouble before. 

The prosecution did not object, and Judge Timothy Gilligan set bond at $5,000 and sent the case to the Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. 

Mason could get up to 5 year in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000 if found guilty. 

She was contracted to the Parma Schools through the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County.
