Both the student and the teacher said that they are in love.
A 22-year-old social science teacher in Connecticut has been arrested for having a sexual relationship with a student whom she taught for a while. The relationship started after the 18-year-old student, who is only four years younger to her, asked for her mobile number. The teacher is now facing charges of three counts of second degree sexual assault. The case came into light after a concerned parent informed the school authorities of the alleged relationship.
Boncal, who was also a sports coach in the school, is accused of engaging in sexual intercourse and oral sex with the teen although the law prohibits sexual contact between students and teachers in the school.
When the school authorities were informed about the relationship, they alerted the police.
The school principal has claimed that none of the sexual encounters between the teacher and the student took place in the school campus but at the teacher’s home.
The duo started exchanging text messages in December last year and had sex several times at Boncal’s house. Both the student and the teacher have admitted to being in love with one another.
The student who previously denied the relationship later admitted to it and even said that the two used to exchange sexually explicit pictures. He said that most of their conversations happened on Facebook messenger and that he has lost his phone recently.
The boy’s parents were sent a letter informing them about the whole situation. The parents have asked no charges to be pressed against both of them as they are in love with each other.
