22-Year-Old Teacher Charged With Sexual Assault For Sex With 18-Year-Old Student

Tayler Ivy Boncal is a 22-year-old teacher at Conard High School in West Hartford. She was charged with sexual assault on Thursday. The charge came after there were reports that Boncal was involved with an 18-year-old student, according to the Hartford Courant. The woman was hired as a student teacher back in December, and that is when she met the teen.

According to the newspaper, once Tayler completed her fall student teaching position, she decided to stay on the faculty as an assistant track coach. The 18-year-old told police that the two began texting one another on December 13th after he asked Tayler for her phone number. Authorities note that Boncal would invite the teen over to her house a number of times and the two would have intercourse.

It has been reported that according to police, Boncal has been charged with three counts of second-degree sexual assault. The Hartford Courant reports, “She is accused of engaging in intercourse and oral sex with the student under a statute that prohibits sexual contact between teachers and students in their schools.”

Police have also added that the sexual encounters took place from December 25th to January 11th at the young woman’s home in New Britain. It was reported by Tom Moore, superintendent of West Hartford Schools, that a “concerned parent” tipped off school officials about the alleged relationship. School officials then notified the police.
