Another female teacher at a public high school has been arrested for allegedly having sex with an underage student.
The venue this time is Daniel Hand High School in Madison, Conn., a genteel coastal suburb. The teacher is Allison Marchese, New Haven ABC affiliate WTNH reports.
Marchese, 37, has faced a long, ongoing police investigation for the last several weeks. The investigation began on Jan. 7 after rumors began to swirl on social media — mainly Yik Yak — that the teacher had sex with an unidentified student.
Police have at last concluded that Marchese did have sex with the student. They also say the two star-crossed lovers exchanged indecent photos.
“We had to go through a lot of interviews and things like that to get all of the facts,” Madison police spokesman Joseph Race told WTNH. “We don’t want any rush to judgments, so that’s why we made sure we had all of the evidence we needed in order to substantiate this arrest.”
