Christina Powell
Christina Powell, 39-year-old former special education teacher from Middletown, Connecticut, who was arrested in Fenbruary 2012 for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student, has accepted a plea deal she was offered in December.

Powell, of 24 Dobson Circle, is charged with second-degree sexual assault for allegedly having a sexual relationship with one of her students for about two years. The state has extended a plea deal offer to Powell, and Powell entered a guilty plea yesterday morning.

Powell earlier pleaded not guilty on Feb. 22 2012 through her attorney. Police were assigned to investigate a “possible improper relationship” between Powell and a student whom Powell had been teaching from eighth grade at Woodrow Wilson Middle School through 10th grade at Middletown High School, according to the warrant. The victim’s mother reported to police that she was concerned about the relationship between Powell and the victim after allegedly finding out that Powell pretended to be the victim’s mother and signed a juvenile summons for an incident where the victim was charged with shoplifting, according to the warrant. The victim’s mother told police that Powell “was very involved” with the victim since eighth grade. At the time, the mother appreciated the effort, according to the warrant. At one point mother found pair of Victoria Secret “Pink” brand V-string panties under her son matress with a Maloney High School class ring with name “Christine Doyle” carved inside it. Powell admitted to police that both items were hers and that she had given right to the victim.

The boy began babysitting her children in 2010. She would drive the boy and his friends around and signed them passes to be late for class.

In an interview with the police Christina Powell admitted that the relationship with the boy had turned sexual around April 2011, shortly after victims 16th birthday. Powell told that victim had tried to kiss her on mouth and she thought that he were joking, but when he did it again she kissed him back on the mouth, and that victim slipped her hands under her shirt and bra feeling her breasts. After that they “messed around” physically a couple of times before they had actual sex. Second time victim put his fingers in her vagina and “fingered her”. Shortly after those sex acts they began to have actual sex with full intercourse. According to interview, Powell told that she would pick up the teen boy about a once a week and drove him to her house to have sex with her in her bedroom. During the summer they had sex more often, usually several times a week. When the school started again, they were back having sex usually once a week. She also told that everything was consensual and that she never pressured or forced him to do anything.

During the course of the preliminary investigation, Powell had admitted to police that she had sent the boy nude photos of herself via cell phone.

Prosecutors recommended that the judge administer a sentence of five years in prison, to be commuted after 18 months, pending a 10-year probation. Powell would also be compelled to register as a sex offender. A Sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 7.
