CAMBRIA, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Niagara County Sheriff's Office says a teacher's aide at the Niagara Academy is facing sex crime charges.

Deputies said Wednesday 33-year-old Melissa Demmin was arrested after the school resource officer received reports earlier this year that Demmin allegedly had unwanted sexual contact with two male students.

She's charged with one felony criminal sexual act count and a misdemeanor count of sexual abuse.
