Nicolas Scott Crenshaw, 28, pleaded guilty to five counts of aggravated sexual assault of a young child, one count of continuous sexual abuse of a young child, and indecency with a child by contact in the sexual abuse of a 5-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl he taught.
Monica Beck, an attorney from Traverse City, Mich., who represents the family of one of the girls, said Crenshaw’s abuse of her client was “heinous.”
“Crenshaw caused my client and her family indescribable pain and suffering and trauma,” she said. “It is solely because of the courage of my client and a school mate, children just out of toddlerhood, that Crenshaw is now behind bars. While this criminal chapter is closed for the family, the question remains as to how Crenshaw’s sexual abuse of two little girls was ever permitted to happen inside of the school during a school day. The question now is where were the adults in the room when this was happening?”
