Convicted sex offender was working at Cedar Falls school

Posted: Updated:

A 40-year-old convicted sex offender has been found working as a night janitor at St. Patrick Catholic School in Cedar Falls.

Investigators discovered the child sex offenses of Michelle Hinde as they looked into several thefts from the school in August.

Hinde is being held in Black Hawk County Jail, pending a total of $45,000 on three charges: theft, probation violation and violation of rules about working in exclusion zones. Online court records don't list the name of her attorney.

Court records say she's barred from working at schools and child-related businesses. Hinde was convicted in 1997 of soliciting sex from a minor and in 2004 of lascivious acts with a child.

Hinde worked for a private company hired by St. Patrick to clean the building after hours.
