Authorities in Connecticut say a former teacher in the special education program of a Bridgeport high school engaged in a sexual relationship with an teen student.
According to the New York Post, 32-year-old Laura Calladio Ramos was arrested last month following a routine traffic stop.
An officer reportedly spotted her talking on her cellphone while driving through Waterford on June 22 and initiated the stop. During the encounter, police say they determined a passenger in the car was an alleged victim from an ongoing sexual assault complaint against her.
The Milford woman has reportedly resigned from her position at Central High School and was subsequently charged with violating a restraining order against her on behalf of two students in the case.
One of those individuals was an 18-year-old special education student she allegedly had a sexual relationship with between December 2016 and April 2017.
She allegedly engaged in a second sexual relationship with another student investigators say she met on more than once at an area restaurant.
Since her initial arrest, Ramos has lost custody of her 2-year-old son following a divorce. She is now awaiting trial on two counts of second-degree sexual assault and is suspected to have assaulted other students.
She was already free on $50,000 bond and her attorney said he will address a motion to revoke her bond at an upcoming court hearing.
“Laura Ramos has faithfully attended every court appearance and will continue to do so,” said Edward Gavin.
Prosecutors in the case did not immediately respond to requests from reporters for a comment connected to the most recent allegations.
