Allyson Brittany Moran, 26, a former substitute teacher and girls soccer coach, was arrested in April for allegedly sexually assaulting a student at Stockbridge High School in Michigan.
According to the Michigan State Police, Moran faces three felony counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a student and one misdemeanor count of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a student. She faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted
Moran allegedly had sexual intercourse with a male student, under the age of 18, on two separate occasions, according to court documents. In August the student bravely came forward and Moran admitted to the police that she had sexual contact with him.
The lead detective on the case testified that Moran also sent graphic pictures of herself to the student over social media.
Officials from Stockbridge school district report that Moran worked there during the 2016-2017 school year as a long-term substitute teacher and coached girls soccer. She was employed by a teacher staffing company and is no longer affiliated with the school district.
Moran was arrested in Illinois and held in the Macon County jail over the weekend. She arrived at the Ingham County Jail on Monday night. Moran was release from custody on a $7,500 bond.
A preliminary hearing is set for October 5. Moran will face up to 15 years in prison if convicted. Moran’s attorney has not responded to any inquiries.
Why are female teachers taking advantage of our sons? Why is this becoming more prevalent? Dr. Domenick Sportelli, a board-certified psychiatrist, told Fox News that the while the psychology behind sexual activity between female adult teachers and student minors is an incredibly complex one, it has its foundations in exploiting the vulnerability of the student and is “predatory” behavior by every definition.
While there are no national statistics specific to teachers available, an investigation by the New Jersey Star-Ledger newspaper, which studied cases between 2003 and 2013, concluded that male teachers receive more stringent legal punishments than females.
