Tina Amato admits sex acts with student in various places movie theater, hotels etc.

Tina Marie Amato, 28-year-old former English teacher at Gar-Field High School, Woodbridge, Virginia, pleaded guilty last week to four felony charges for having a sexual relationship with a student.
Amato was arrested in April 2011 for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student and faced charges of indecent liberties by a custodian, crimes against nature and use of a communications system to facilitate certain offenses. Amato pleaded guilty in Prince William Circuit Court to three counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor by a custodian and one count of crimes against nature.

On April 1, 2011, school staff found out about the sexua relationship between female teacher and male student when they confiscated the student’s cell phone, after he had been texting in school. The administrator found “texts of a vulgar and sexual nature” from Amato to the teen on his phone and contacted police who started investigation.

According to the boy, relationship with Amato began when he was 15-year-old and in the ninth grade, in the 2008-2009 school year. Amato, who was his English teacher, kissed him in an empty classroom near the end of the school year the two continued their relationship over the summer by chatting online and occassionally going to the movies together, according to prosecutors. During the next school year, the relationship became sexual, authorities said. The two would perform sex acts on each other at an area movie theater occasionally and at least once they had sex in a Woodbridge hotel, according to court documents.

Amato told police that she fell in love with the boy.

Amato, of 413 White Oak Road in Fredericksburg, is also charged with four counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor in Stafford County. Authorities said those charges stem from Amato having sex with the boy at her home.
