Lisa Franklin, 44-year-old substitute teacher accused of sex with 12-year-old student


Lisa Franklin, 44-year-old substitute teacher from Orange County, New York, was arrested earlier this week and has been charged with raping a student.

Franklin, of Gerri Court, in the Town of Newburgh, allegedly met the teen boy year ago when he was a 12-year-old student at Sacred Heart School in Newburgh, where Lisa Franklin worked as a substitute. Back in February, the boys parents contacted local police and told they found inappropriate text messages on his phone and became concerned about the relationship between their son and older woman.

Taking a liking to the boy, a student at the school, Franklin befriended his parents - persuading them to let her become his personal at-home tutor. The boys parents had "trusted she was acting as an adult and doing the proper thing" but instead"sexual intercourse [AND]oral sex would occur in a car".

An investigation determined Lisa Franklin and the boy “were involved in numerous sex acts in multiple jurisdictions,”according to police. Franklin was charged with one count of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, for an act allegedly committed in the Town of Newburgh, and two counts of second-degree rape, for acts allegedly committed in New Windsor and the City of Newburgh. The investigation is continuing and police said additional charges are expected. Both charges are felonies.
Franklin was arraigned before New Windsor Town Justice Noreen Calderin and sent to Orange County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail pending further court action.

Cops say Franklin has two teenage children of her own and worked as a substitute teacher at Sacred Heart School until the spring of 2012.
