ANTIGO, Wis. (WSAW) - Bond has been set at $250,000 for a 31-year-old Pearson woman charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child.

Ashley King appeared in Langlade County Circuit Court on Monday. Court documents state a child under the age of 16 reported having a sexual encounter with King in February.

The Elcho School District website lists King as an educational professional. District Administrator Rachel Lemanczyk released this statement to NewsChannel 7:
