Laura Ramos, a special education teacher at Central High School has been suspended pending an investigation into a sexual relationship she was allegedly having with an 18 year old boy. Police say she has admitted to having an affair with the boy for parts of 2016 and 2017.
A Connecticut special education teacher who has been charged with second-degree sexual assault after police say she engaged in a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student allegedly told another teen she wasn’t being satisfied by her husband.
The teacher, 31-year-old Laura Ramos, has been placed on administrative leave from her position at Central High School in Bridgeport following her arrest Tuesday, according to The Connecticut Post.
Ramos’ lawyer says his client is ‘cloaked in the presumption of innocence.
Officers were called to the high school June 9 following a complaint of a sexual assault.
Officers say a student at the school told a teacher Ramos had been having sexual intercourse with one of her students in the special education program.
Police say Ramos told them she had a relationship with the victim from December 23, 2016 until April 2017.
The relationship entailed a number of sexual encounters during this period, according to police.
Another student told school officials that Ramos began a texting relationship with him, according to WFSB.
In these text messages, Ramos allegedly confided to the student about her marital problems.
‘Ms. Ramos would complain that her “man” or “guy” does not want to have sex or do anything with her,’ according to police documents.
But she later admitted that she was so alarmed by the investigation that she talked to the student with whom she allegedly had her liaisons about denying their relationship, according to police.
Ramos and the student discussed deleting text messages between them, police said.
Eventually, she admitted to police that she and the student had sex ‘a handful of times’ in her car – the most recent encounter having taken place in April.
On June 20, Ramos resigned from the school, even though the district had already started the process of terminating her employment.
