DENVER – A Jefferson County woman was formally charged Monday with child sexual assault charges after she allegedly molested an 8-year-old girl for several years.

Alexandra Kuisis, 42, faces three counts of sexual assault on a child, three counts of sexual assault on a child by someone in a position of trust and one count of sexual assault on a child with a pattern of abuse.

Kuisis allegedly started assaulting the girl in 2008 after she befriended the girl’s family. The victim was just 8 years old when the alleged abuse started.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office says the girl recently told her family about her molestation, which led to Kuisis’ September arrest.

Records show she was an admissions director at a Montessori school in California at one point. This is her first charge in Colorado.

Kuisis has been released from jail after posting a $50,000 bond and is next scheduled in court on Oct. 6.
