BLOOMINGTON – Glenn Elementary School teacher Jonathon Hovey has been released on bond as he awaits trial for allegedly molesting two first graders who were in his class.
Records at the McLean County Circuit Clerk’s office show Hovey posted $10,035 cash and was released Saturday, a day after his arrest. Conditions of his bond include that he can’t have contact with the two alleged victims, or anyone younger than 18.
Hovey, 47, of Forsyth, is charged with inappropriately touching one of the children in 2004, and the other in 2017.
Unit 5 placed Hovey on paid administrative leave after the victim of the more recent alleged abuse reported the incidents to her mother.
Hovey’s next court appearance is set for Aug. 16.
