Connecticut special education teacher Laura Ramos, 31, reportedly wasn’t getting any action at home, so she started hitting on one of her students.
According to court documents, about a month to six weeks ago, Ramos began telling another student at Central High School in Bridgeport that she was going through marital issues.
“Ms. Ramos would complain that her ‘man’ or ‘guy’ does not want to have sex or do anything with her,” the student told school officials, according to the arrest warrant.
Ramos, who has one young child, surrendered to police on Tuesday after finding out that there was a warrant for her arrest. She has been charged with second-degree sexual assault after investigators said she confessed to having sex with the male student several times.
Certified to teach students with autism, Ramos never identified the victim, whom the student witness said was an 18-year-old special education student. “Witness 1 noticed the victim would hang out in Ms. Ramos’ class and … would watch them make eyes at each other like flirting,” court documents said.
Ramos sent the student witness sexually explicit text messages and also asked about buying marijuana for her and her husband. Detectives took photos of the texts, which will be used as evidence against her.
Ramos, who was also a Zumba dance teacher, initially denied having a sexual relationship with the student, but she later did confess to having sex with the teen a “handful of times” in her car.
Ramos was released after posting $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Bridgeport on June 28.
