Social Worker Charged With Having Sex With an Underaged Boy

A 22 year-old youth worker in Racine has been accused of having sex with a 17 year-old boy--and videotaping the episode. 

Amanda Eckblad was charged Thursday with possession of child pornography and having sex with a child. The criminal complaint said Eckblad shared her home with the boy.

Eckblad was already in trouble for allegedly buying a gun for the boy in a straw purchase.

In court Thursday, Eckblad's bail was increased to $25,000.

As a contract employee, Eckblad worked at Case High School during the last school year in its truancy abatement program. Her resume includes an internship in the Racine County Human Services Dept.
