GREEN BAY, Wis. — A staff member at a Green Bay high school is accused of sexually assaulting a male student.

Thirty-one-year-old Courtney Roznowski, a paraprofessional at Southwest High School, appeared in court Wednesday on sexual assault charges.

A police report says Roznowski and the 16-year-old boy denied having a sexual relationship when confronted earlier this week. WLUK-TV says the report says Roznowski later confessed to investigators when they asked for permission to go through her phone.

The school district issued a statement which says a staff member has been placed on unpaid administrative leave while the allegations are investigated.

Roznowski is due back in court Sept. 5.
