Connecticut teacher who had ‘sex with student’ may not be charged

A former student teacher and assistant track coach who was accused of having a sexual relationship with a high school student may have her charges dropped.

Taylor Boncal, 23, was charged with three counts of second degree sexual assault in New Britain, Connecticut in March. But Boncal, who told police she loved the boy after she was arrested, has since been granted accelerated rehabilitation.

If Boncal successfully completes the program – which is for first-time, nonviolent suspects – then the charges will be dropped in 2020.

Judge Joan Alexander granted the accelerated rehabilitation last week and said Boncal will have to stay in the program until July 2020, according to the New Britain Herald.

Boncal cannot take a job that requires any supervisory role over students, including teaching and coaching. She also cannot have any contact with the 18-year-old male student she allegedly had a sexual relationship with.

Boncal and the boy met while she was a student teacher at Conrad High School as part of her studies for Central Connecticut State University.

The boy reportedly asked for Boncal’s number in December 2017 and the pair began exchanging explicit text messages and photos.

According to police, the first sexual encounter happened in December, sometime around Christmas, at Boncal’s home. The first time they had sex, both she and the boy said they engaged in intercourse and then she performed oral sex on him. The boy told police they then had intercourse another three times at her home before January 11.

On January 12, another student who was using cheap essay service, told the school’s athletic director about the affair and the boy was called into the principal’s office for questioning. He at first tried to deny the affair but then admitted it, stating that he did not want Boncal to get into trouble.

Boncal was placed on administrative leave and was later questioned by police. ‘She stated that the victim was kind to her. Boncal stated that she loved the victim and was emotional regarding her feelings for him,’ according to her arrest warrant, which was obtained by

Neither the boy or his parents wanted Boncal to face charges, according to a Town of West Hartford spokesman.

Conrad High School Principal Julio Duarte sent a letter to parents at the time of the incident saying the school did not ‘tolerate any behavior that compromises the safety or well-being of our students’. ‘As educators, we are entrusted to protect and educate all of our students and know there are certain boundaries that can never be crossed,’ the letter read. ‘I hope you will not let the misconduct of this one individual cast a shadow over all of our staff members who demonstrate their commitment to our students every day.’

Although the boy was of legal age when they had sex, prosecutors deemed their encounters sexual assault because she was a teacher at the school he attended when they occurred.
