Teacher’s aide sentenced in child molestation case

Holly Marie Polson

LANCASTER – A teacher’s aid who last month pleaded no contest to sexually molesting a 13-year-old student whom she tutored was sentenced to state prison Thursday.

Holly Marie Polson, 35, of Palmdale was sentenced to six years in state prison by Superior Court Judge Hayden Zacky. Additionally, Polson was ordered to register as a sex offender for life and received a 10-year stay-away order from the victim.

Deputy District Attorney Valerie Little of the Antelope Valley Branch Office prosecuted the case.

Polson pleaded no contest on Feb. 29 to four counts of lewd act on a child under 14. She has been in custody since her arrest on June 14, 2011.

Polson, who was an instructional aide at Shadow Hills Intermediate School, admitted to an ongoing sexual relationship with the student between May 29 and June 10, 2011. The incidents took place in a classroom and in her car.

The boy’s mother alerted law enforcement when she learned of the relationship.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigated the case.

    This is so sad, this lady has some serious issues. Has any of the authorities,checked out her own children? Has she abused them in any kind of way? She not only destroyed this young boys life, she destroyed her children as well. A 10 year stay away, how about for the rest of her life.

    One can be touched and still incensed by your ingorance and potty mouth. Try educating yourself. Comic books might be a good place to start.

    I’m assuming you have a foul mouth indicative of an absence of fundamental intelligence and/or a lacking of education. You are in essence pre-literate or simple calous.

    I agree with Gladdis. That is so disrespectful to all women. Especially her own children. Im not sure how old they are but how imbarrasing would that be? They will be the ones who suffer from this. People think about all the bad things that come of these kind of crimes. Its just not worth it. If you are so f—ed up in your head that you have to ruin childrens lives go kill yourself and let the world be without you instead of making more problemed people. They never get over it. You on the other hand will because you dont care.

    I can’t believe no one has commented on this disgusting story. If it had been a man teacher taking advantage of a 13 yr old girl everyone would be outraged.
    This woman is defective. I wouldn’t even attempt to get inside her mind to figure out why she would do such a thing to a young boy. Mothers are not supposed to do these things to children. No one is, but especially not someone who is a mother.

      Sorry this bitch doesn’t deserve even a negative comment! Once again all the children involved will suffer and hopefully overcome!

        Quigley, I bet you even speak like this to the women in your family. Trying reading books and improve your grasp on words.

          Are you assuming I am male? She is a bitch! A 35 year old woman who seduces a 13 year old boy is a bitch, and a child molester according to the law books!
