Youth Counselor Charged With Sexual Exploitation

A former youth counselor at Four Oaks Children and Family Services in Cedar Rapids was arrested in Dubuque yesterday after police say she had an ongoing sexual relationship with a teenaged boy from Dubuque. Court records say 21 year old Rachele Padgett of Central City is charged with one felony count of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist. Documents say the boy informed a caseworker of his involvement with Padgett both at the facility and away from it. Four Oaks also has a facility in Dubuque. If convicted, Padgett could face up to five years behind bars.
