Former School District Employee Enters Alford Plea

A former Natrona County School District employee entered Alford Pleas to sexually abusing a teen. 

The 15-year-old victim told authorities her sexual relationship with Jason Joreski began three years ago when Joreski began working as the special education assistant for CY Junior High School. 

The victim eventually spoke to authorities when she said she was tired of being forced to perform sexual acts. 

Joreski was arrested earlier this summer on 20 charges related to the sexual abuse. 

In return for Alford Pleas to four of those charges, he is expected to spend up to 25 years in prison. 

An Alford Plea essentially carries the same consequences as a guilty plea.
