31-year-old Bridgett Szychulski stands accused of having sex at least three times with one of her students back in 2012. Now, her attorney is asking the judge presiding over her case to grant her leniency, seeing as how she is in the middle of a difficult pregnancy.
The pregnant teacher turned herself in on Tuesday morning. She was later arraigned that afternoon.
Szychulski was the band teacher at Lenape Middle School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, at the time of her alleged affair with one of her 14-year-old students. She was arraigned on Tuesday afternoon after authorities contacted her on Friday regarding the very serious allegations. After voluntarily turning herself in at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, she was booked on charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and statutory sexual assault.
The brief affair allegedly consisted of one sexual encounter in Szychulski’s vehicle and two more inside of the middle school. As the victim is a minor, his identity is being protected.
Allegations: Szychulski had sex once in her vehicle and twice on the Lenape Middle School campus with a 14-yr-old student.
After news of her misconduct reached authorities, Szychulski was suspended from her teaching position on Friday, after working for the district for seven years.
District Judge Regina Armitage has set bail at $500,000 and barred the sleazy teacher from having any contact with minors besides her 4-year-old son. She is also banned from speaking to any students or staff from her former workplace.
Szychulski is a wife and mother with one son. She lives in the Philadelphia area with her family.
