Cassondra Goodson was released on a $100,000 bond from Cuyahoga County jail last week. But the 34-year-old Shaker Heights woman was re-arrested Friday for contacting the minor, a violation of a judge's order.
Goodson was an employee at Parmadale when she met the then-13-year-old girl. They allegedly had sexual relations starting in February.
The state put 90-year-old Parmadale on probation in September pending an investigation. No additional children were sent to the facility, and the mental health department removed four girls in October. Goodson was initially arrested earlier this month, by which time she had been fired from her job as a shift coordinator.
Catholic Charities, which runs Parmadale, said in a statement it has a zero-tolerance policy with regard to sexual abuse, and it also fired another employee allegedly involved in the case.
Cassondra Goodson is slated to be arraigned this week.
