A high school teacher was arrested for sexually assaulting a special ed student


A Connecticut high school teacher was arrested on Tuesday after she admitted to having sex with a special ed student. 

Laura Ramos, 31, taught special education classes at Central High School in Bridgeport. The male student was reported to be 18-years-old. Laura Ramos, who is a wife and mother, was later charged with second-degree sexual assault. 

According to WTFB, a student witness told school officials that Ramos began texting him "as a normal teacher helping a student." Later on she started to confide in him, and began complaining about her "man" -- believed to be the teen she had a sexual relationship with. 

Ramos admitted to authorities that she had sex with the 18-year-old teen "a handful of times" and said the affair began in December and ended in April. The teacher submitted a letter of resignation to the school on June 20. School officials told WFSB termination proceedings have been initiated.
