He could face multiple felonies from the charges.

The Chicago Times reported that Ewing admitted to assaulting the now 21-year old woman who was 15 when she began receiving texts from Ewing that “were of a romantic nature.”  He was a theaters teacher with the Chicago Public Schools when the alleged assault took place.
