High School Teacher Accused of Sex with Student




Kristy C. Risell, 31-year-old high school teacher from Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, has been arrested and  accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old male student.

Risell, who works as an English teacher at Daniel Boone High School, faces various counts, including statutory sexual assault, indecent assault and exposure, and corruption of a minor. The alleged criminal relations with the student reportedly began in January 2012 when the teacher began texting with the male student. According to prosecutors the sexual relationship between female teacher and male student lasted four months.

Risell used to pick the teen boy  up at his home and bringing the victim over to her house in Exeter Township, where the two performed sex acts on each other and engaged in full sexual intercourse multiple times., according to a statement by the prosecutor. When detectives talked to the student in April, they say "the victim disclosed the sexual abuse by Kristy Risell."

Risell  voluntarily resigned from her teaching position at Daniel Boone on Thursday, said district officials, who added that she has been on leave from her job since April. "Upon its initial receipt of information related to the events underlying this criminal prosecution, the district administration immediately notified the appropriate law enforcement and governmental authorities, as required by applicable law," the Daniel Boone School District said in a statement.
