Teacher Pleads ‘Not Guilty’ To Sex Charge
NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) – An arrest warrant affidavit unsealed in the case of an East Lyme music teacher accused of having sex with a high school student says she acknowledged to investigators she had the affair even though she knew it was wrong.
The New London Day reports the affidavit was unsealed Monday at a New London Superior Court appearance for 25-year-old Amy Schneider. Schneider’s attorney entered a not guilty plea for her.
The affidavit says Schneider told investigators the affair with a 17-year-old male student began last fall with flirting, but developed after he posted a message on her Facebook page saying he had feelings for her. The student ended the relationship last month.
The student was old enough to legally consent to sex, but it’s illegal for school employees to have sex with students.
