The suspended Central Bucks South High School teacher was charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and statutory sexual assault.
The Bucks County District Attorney's Office alleges Szychulski initiated a relationship with the middle school boy by texting lewd photos that led to at least three sexual encounters between January and June 2012. They had sex in Szychulski's car, at her Lenape Middle School office in Doylestown and in a storage closet near the band room, according to local media sources.
A criminal investigation was launched last week after a tip to the Pennsylvania Child Abuse Hotline and Szychulski was suspended from her job Friday.
"This is a criminal prosecution and, as such, the appropriate primary information source is the District Attorney's Office," Central Bucks Schools Superintendent David Weitzel said in an email to parents. "However, I can report that upon learning of the alleged incident the teacher was immediately suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. She is also prohibited until further notice from coming onto school district property or having any contact with any Central Bucks School District students."
Szychulski was a middle school teacher at the time of the illicit relationship. The boy, now 16, recently texted her to say he told a friend of the affair.
I hope that this woman's husband gets a paternity test down. You never know!
