Officials at Adelphoi Village fired Zawodniak shortly after her arrest.
Many were sexual in nature (and) definitely inappropriate,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Steve Limani said. “She was leaving notes on his pillow. “He claims it was unwanted.”
“I am so [expletive] stupid, so [expletive] fired. I can’t lose my kids over this,” Zawodniak allegedly told the counsellor.
According to multiple reports, a counsellor grew suspicious of inappropriate behaviour between Zawodniak and the 18-year-old after they were seen walking around and chatting one day.
In one of the alleged instances, police say Zawodniak was caught in the act with an 18-year-old in the laundry room at the Adelphoi Village in Latrobe, Pa., where she had worked for just eight days.
