Connecticut Teacher Accused of Sex with Boy, 15
(New Canaan, Connecticut) A 25-year-old former church youth group leader and former substitute teacher, Morgan V. Frawley, has been accused of engaging in sex with a 15-year-old boy.
The boy's parents contacted officials at the Congregational Church of New Canaan in April after they found sexually explicit images and texts on their son's cell phone, according to New Canaan Police Sgt. Carol Ogrinc.Frawley faces a court appearance on December 9.
Former Congregational Church of New Canaan Senior Minister Harold "Skip" Masback reported the relationship to the state Department of Children and Families after he was notified by the boy's parents, Interim Senior Minister Anne Coffman said.
DCF learned about the incident on April 23 and contacted New Canaan police that same day, regarding reports that Frawley was having an inappropriate sexual relationship with the 15-year-old male.
Clergy members are required to report any allegations of child abuse to authorities. DCF found reason to turn the case over to police.
In April, the church suspended Frawley, who was 24 at the time, from her role as a youth group leader after allegations of the sexual relationship were made, Coffman said.
