High school teacher arrested after she confesses to father-in-law that she had sex with 17-year-old student
Laura V. Bucy drove to her former father-in-law's house in Doylestown on August 2 and made some 'incoherent statements' asking for forgiveness
A high school teacher from Ohio, identified as 32-year-old Laura V. Bucy, was arrested after she admitted to having had sex with a 17-year-old male student, according to a police report. Bucy reportedly made the confession to her former father-in-law.
Bucy drove to her former father-in-law's house in Doylestown on August 2 and made some "incoherent statements" and asked for forgiveness. Her former husband then alerted authorities telling them that Bucy is his ex-wife, according to the Daily Mail.
The Twinsburg Bulletin reported that Bucy, a resident of Akron, said to have told the man that "she had slept with one of her students", before leaving North on Interstate 71 in Cuyahoga County. She then "parked her vehicle in the middle of the road and walked away from it" and was eventually found by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper who spotted her walking barefoot next to an SUV, which had stopped traffic in the right two lanes.
The teacher was then taken to the Southwest Hospital in Middleburg Heights for an evaluation and was subsequently arrested in September for charges of sexual battery, a third-degree felony and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, a fifth-degree felony.
Bucy reportedly told police officials that she had met the teenager at a time when she was overwhelmed with personal matters and that she had a "sexual relationship with a student" and "exchanged compromising photographs" with the boy. She added that her relationship with the student blossomed when the teen offered to assist her in cleaning the classroom.
Bucy also allegedly allowed the teenager to "vape" in her office and even purchased "vaping" juice for him. Reports state that the duo engaged in sexual intercourse once.
Officials also talked to the boy in the presence of his parents and he said that he was cleaning in the pantry when the teacher came up behind him and began kissing him, which eventually resulted in sexual intercourse.
The school administration issued a statement saying that Bucy has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation "a serious matter involving alleged misconduct on school property".
The teacher is reportedly scheduled for a preliminary hearing before Judge Kim Hoover on October 4 and has currently been released on bond.
