A Michigan substitute teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a teen student in her basement and sending him nude photos over social media.
According to the Lansing State Journal, a preliminary hearing revealed that the victim allegedly met Allyson Brittany Moran, 26, a long-term substitute teacher at Stockbridge High School, during the 2016-2017 school year while he was a student in her class. In court, the unidentified student claimed their relationship was normal at first but they quickly “started talking more in a sexual manner.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Moran supposedly assaulted the student in Dansville home twice in April. The victim is said to have come forward in August, presumably leading Moran to admit to police what happened.
The recent hearing provided more insight into the accusations lodged against the educator. The victim claimed they corresponded through Snapchat, where the pair sent one another nude images in March.
From there, the boy said he went to Moran’s home in April during spring break. Upon his arrival, Moran allegedly led him to a basement she called a “man cave,” removed her robe, and kissed him. The teen recalled Moran leading him to an upstairs bedroom, where they “just talked for a little bit” before she sexually assaulted him.
He claimed that they had sex again a day or two after the first encounter. The Journal reported that the victim told his girlfriend about the alleged assaults in July and a family member went to police in August.
Officials said the 26-year-old was employed through EDUStaff, a teacher staffing company, and is no longer working for the school district. EDUStaff President Clark Galloway claimed she was placed on administrative leave in August.
Judge Thomas Boyd determined that there was “ample evidence” to warrant a trial. The Michigan woman faces three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a student and one count of fourth-degree criminal sexual involving a student.
Moran’s arraignment is scheduled for November 8. If convicted, she faces up to 15 years in prison.
