EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (KMOV) – A 28-year-old part-time employee at the YMCA in Edwardsville, Ill. has been accused of molesting a child.
On April 20 during day camp at the YMCA’s skate center, Kassidy Kueper allegedly made inappropriate contact with a 9-year-old girl. A staff member reported the incident, and Kueper was arrested Thursday. A warrant was issued Friday for two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and Kueper’s bond was set at $100,000.
CEO Gary Niebur will not comment on the matter because the case is an ongoing investigation. He refers to a statement saying the accused has been suspended indefinitely, and promises cooperation with authorities.
