I just wonder if she'll be judged the same way a man would be judged if he did this to teenage girls.
The answer to that is, HELL NO!!! You already know better...

I know this family and I've ALWAYS thought they were odd. My child was in the same class as her daughter since kindergarten. I feel so bad for those girls. Her oldest will be messed up for life, more than she already is. May god bless those poor little girls.

Chicago Ridge, Ill.- A suburban mother of three charged with molesting teenage boys has been released from jail on bond, but her arrest has launched a new investigation.
Cathleen Miller has been an administrative clerk in the village of Chicago Ridge for more than 20 years.
Prosecutors say she plied three teenage boys with drugs and alcohol and molested them.
Now, FOX Chicago News has learned that leaders in Chicago Ridge have launched an audit of the village's books.
They reportedly want to make sure she didn't use village money.
The village people!! Who would have thunk it.

You must be one of them. I did hit a nerve. I wouldn't give you the satisfaction of posting my name. I don't patronize the Grove, so I most likely won't be having a chat with a couple of them. I said nothing of arresting the parents, I said they should teach their little boys about right from wrong. Thanks for the advise on talking it out with the parents. I will be glad to the next time I run into one of them. Perhaps at the ridge rat fest??
Can't wait that long...meet me at freedom park tomorrow so I can kick your ass.

I would hope that people would reserve judgement until they know the whole story. Of course that will never happen on Topix... I have known Cathy since she was 4 years old, and she is a wonderful person who has suffered abuse. I just ask that you remember that she has 3 children who are suffering too. This is a very difficult time for everyone involved. Please think about that before you make assumptions about her character, and please keep her family in your prayers.
It is so funny how people in this country live by a double standard. If this were a man with high school girls, everyone would be burning the guy at the stake.

Who cares about the "abuse" she suffered? She broke the law!
I'll put the stake up, you get the match.

You have to be kidding me! She suffered abuse and you want us to pray? Why in the hell didn't someone stop her from having kids? If she was abused she should have dealt with all those issues before having kids. Did she marry the same type of man that abused her as a child? They sometimes do. I am so sick of people thinking the lord will take away peoples pain. Sometimes a good shrink does wonders. Maybe a shrink could have spared this child if only someone had told instead of praying! It's never the monster people that rapes kids the most often, it's the ones everyone trusts, that have the opportunity every day to do it. Like priests, teachers, mommies , daddies and uncles. Until you live in that house every day you have no idea what those kids go through.

Ok first of all, lets clarify a few things. Cathy was NOT abused as a child. She has a very loving family. The abuse started when she married her husband.
Now, I do not defend nor do I condone what she is accused of doing. Its wrong no matter how you look at it, but the fact is that I have known her since the age of 4, and this person is NOT Cathy. People need to understand that when someone has a complete mental breakdown, it causes them to act in a way that they normally would not. The Cathy I KNOW is a loving mother with a kind heart who would never ever do anything like this. If this were a man that I KNEW I would be saying the exact same thing. This isnt about gender. Its about what happens to a persons thought process when abuse drives them over the edge. I am not trying to justify this in any way, just stating that a person can mentally break down to a point that they do things completely out of character. The people who are having their bash fests on these forums do not KNOW the person she truly is. Its very easy to judge a person when you dont know them and havent walked in their shoes... and lets not forget, you are basing your opinions on the speculation of the media, and the gossip you hear in your litle town of Mayberry.
Maybe the parents of these boys should have questioned why their boys kept going there day after day?? They KNEW their kids were there. One of the parents said that she took their innocence away LMAOOO there is nothing innocent about these kids. Cathy has had no contact with them for a month now... how bout we drug test them NOW and see what theyve been up to the last few weeks??
How Pathetic

If you knew her since you were 4, I would think you knew her pretty well, right?
If you knew she wasn't right and going through a mental break down, why didn't you do something before all of this?
Oh ya, the easy way out is to blame her breakdown on her husband.
A man that reached out to DCFS, Chicago Ridge Police, OLOR School and was put off by all of them.
Why?
I wish I had the answers.
Instead there is a whole lot of people going through hell!
And REALLY, quit blaming the boys, they are boys she is the adult.
And if you knew the boys were there day after day, did you ever ask yourself, WOW this isn't normal and talk to your friend about it?
Well, all is said and done and the truth will prevail.
In the mean time the kids suffer, the husband suffers and Cathy suffers.
If you were such a good friend, you should have done something ALONG time ago, and there wouldn't have been any suffering!!!!

If true, this bimbo is a sicko who should spend some time in prison. The commentary about "she was perfectly normal until her abusive husband did her the favor of leaving is a pile of bullsh*t. I don't buy it. I would say it's quite atypical for a mom to wake up one morning and begin to drink, smoke dope with and service the neighborhood kids going through puberty.

Oh, and dudes who think her guilt would exhalt her into some sort of weird science hero, she's a pedophile. If the dude who works at the 7-11 was caught getting the neighborhood boys stoned and blowing them we would have already strung him up from the sign.

I myself, was a victim of both physical and mental abuse, and using that as an excuse for what she did, that's PATHETIC.
No matter what her mental status was/is, it was wrong.
Not only is she guilty of abusing all those teens, but in my opinion, her own children as well.
It's pathetic, and as one person stated, what if it were your children that had been abused?
I know then, and only then, that's the only time that people honestly open their eyes.
I don't care WHERE she worked, WHO she was, or who people believed her to be, what's at hand, is what she did, who she did it to, and all those teen children that will forever, have their lives altered, at the hands of what some of you call "responsible adult".
Honest people have lost their children for a lot less, children are abused/neglected every second of every day.
The more people protect and shut their eyes, the more it will continue to grow and more children will suffer.
I realize there are "some" cases where "Rumors" are unfounded, and the person is honestly innocent.
But you hear something and you do nothing? If you were a good friend, you should have talk to someone, but you didn't, to me, that makes you just as guilty.
Btw, regardless of how "hot" she was or wasn't, that's just ignorance.

Kathyb is an Aunt. She will defend Cathy to the death. What is it you want to know? Blood is thicker than water. And Kathyb isn't even blood. Family secrets? Lots of them! As a family friend I find it disgusting! And I know pretty much all the family secrets. She,(Cathy), molested children! As a Mother, what would she have done, if it was her daughter? And leave her husband alone. As far as I could see, he tried to be a good father, and she was a total Hag of a wife. She berated him in public all the time. Subtle, but many people witinessed it, for years!!!
The fact that KathyB is a relative but not by blood, does that make her any less concerned for what this family is going through. Some friend you've been!!!

"Dont Hate" and "Kathy B" need to keep their comments to themselves. They are obviously Cathy's family or friends, and they somehow think that trying to stick up for her on Topix will help her in some way. Your comments about Cathy are much more disgusting than the perverted jokes people are posting on her because you are actually serious & you should be ashamed of yourselves. Do yourself & your family a favor and stop embarrassing your family by posting your comments online.
Trying to blame this situation on her husband is pathetic. Cathy tried to blame all of this on domestic abuse AFTER she was caught (probably after advice from her co-workers). I wouldn't be surprised if the Ridges taxpayer money was used to bail her out! She is not insane - she was smart enough to check herself into the psych ward after finding out that she would be arrested to buy herself more time to get a lawyer and come up with her defense.
The partying with the teenage boys went on for many months and the only reason it stopped was because of the apology to her daughter on facebook. If that didn't happen she would still be molesting the boys. She should never be allowed to see her kids again. I can't imagine her daughter wanting to ever see her again after walking in on her and the 13 year old boy.
Also, to all of you guys posting comments about how "lucky" those boys are to have been molested by her - you are also pathetic. I hope that you are joking. And, look at her picture, she is ugly/nasty & not only will the boys have to live with the physical abuse, but now they will be made fun of by their classmates for doing those things with that hoe-bag.
I truly feel sorry for her husband and children - especially the daughter who walked in on her!

OH SO WORKING AT THE VILLAGE HALL REALLY F --D HER UP?
26 YEARS AT THE JOB IN CHICAGO RIDGE, REALLY MAKES YOU WONDER HOW SHE WAS TREATED BY OTHER EMPLOYEES? ALL 26 YEARS
YOU SAY, I BET HER VICTIMS AND THE PARENTS OF HER VICTIMS KNOW OF HER CHARACTER. STOP BLAMING HER X HUSBAND HE WAS NOT PRESENT WHEN SHE WAS DRINKING, AND SMOKING POT WITH MINERS. AND HE WAS NOT THE ONE HAVING SEX WITH THEM EITHER. 40 YEARS, YOU SEEM TO KNOW HER AGE, TOO BAD SHE DIDNOT REMEMBER THAT HERSELF, FOR THE SAKE OF HER OWN CHILDREN. HOW EMBARESSING FOR THEM, TOO KNOW MOM DID THIS TOO THEM. WONDER HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT HER, WHERE IS DAD? HOPE HE CAN RAISE THEM AND BE THERE FOR THEM.
You are an idiot. This has nothing to do with her job. And YOU were the one that wasn't present and have many inaccurate things in your post. Freedom of speech should really not apply to people who have NO IDEA what they are talking about.
