Lake County teachers charged in sex abuse case

November 15, 2014

INGLESIDE, Ill. (AP) — Authorities have charged two Lake County teachers with misdemeanor counts of failing to report a teacher now charged with molesting a student.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reported Friday (http://bit.ly/1Bs0Bj9) that 34-year-old April Courtney of Wauconda and 38-year-old Michael Lanners of Lake Villa were released from Lake County jail after they each posted $5,000 bond. A warrant has been issued for a third teacher who has not been located.

The teachers are accused of withholding their suspicions that Gavin Middle School teacher Michael Vucic was sexually abusing a student.

Vucic is in custody in Bosnia-Herzegovina after being arrested in September. He is fighting extradition to the United States.

A call to Lanners was not immediately returned and Courtney does not have a listed phone number.
