Rawlings' jury trial on the charges is currently set to begin July 9. She's free on bond.
According to Danley, authorities believe the sex acts took place in Rawlings' home.
She was employed as a nurse with the Eastern Illinois Area of Special Education. However, the alleged victim was not an EIASE student and the reported crimes did not take place on EIASE time, according to officials with the special education organization.
