A special education teacher was arrested in June for having sex with one of her students has been arrested again for having sexual relations with another student.
Laura Ramos, 31, turned herself into police Wednesday morning when after she learnt that there was a warrant out for her arrest.
She was booked on two counts of second-degree sexual assault, and released after posting $50,000 bond. The charge is the same one she was hit with earlier this summer, in the first case.
Police are now saying that they believe Ramos has had sex with at least four students, though she has only been formally charged in connection to two.
Ramos’ husband escorted her to her first charge, but he was not to be seen on Wednesday as she was given the new charges.
During the hearing, she sat alone in the back of the courtroom, combing her hair and staring into her pink cellphone, according to the CT Post.
Judge William Holden ordered Ramos not to have further contact with her suspected victims. She is due back in court for that case on August 14.
Ramos resigned from her job at Central High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut after her first arrest.
Three days after Ramos was arrested in June, police say another victim came forward and admitted to having sex with the teacher.
The student said that in April, he went with Ramos to a restaurant in Fairfield and that after dinner the two had sex in her car in the parking lot.
Later that month, they met up at another restaurant in Shelton, and had sex in the restaurant’s ‘electrical room’. This was after Ramos apparently complained about her husband not wanting to have sex with her.
After that, the teen said Ramos sent him a text message saying it was the best sex she had ever had.
Police first started investigating Ramos on June 9, when they were called to the school after a complaint of sexual assault.
Officers say a student at the school told a teacher Ramos had been having sexual intercourse with one of her students in the special education program.
Police say Ramos told them she had a relationship with the victim from December 23, 2016 until April 2017.
The relationship involved a number of sexual encounters during this period, according to police.
Another student told school officials that Ramos began a texting relationship with him, according to WFSB.
In these text messages, Ramos allegedly confided to the student about her marital problems.
‘Ms. Ramos would complain that her “man” or “guy” does not want to have sex or do anything with her,’ according to police documents.
The student said he began to suspect that one of his classmates was engaging in inappropriate relations with Ramos.
‘Witness 1 noticed the victim would hang out in Ms. Ramos’ class and… would watch them make eyes at each other like flirting,’ court documents said.
The witness also told police that the text messages included sexually-charged content.
When detectives initially approached Ramos, she denied having a sexual relationship with the student.
But she later admitted that she was so alarmed by the investigation that she talked to the student with whom she apparently had her liaisons about denying their relationship, according to police.
Ramos and the student discussed deleting text messages between them, police said.
Eventually, she admitted to police that she and the student had sex ‘a handful of times’ in her car, the most recent encounter having taken place in April.
On June 20, Ramos resigned from the school, even though the district had already started the process of terminating her employment.
‘Please be assured that the safety and welfare of our students is our main priority at Bridgeport Public Schools, and we make every effort to ensure the ongoing safety of our students,’ the district said in a statement.
‘We take seriously all allegations of inappropriate conduct which threatens the well-being of our students, and such misconduct will not be tolerated.’
