Philadelphia Teacher Pleads Guilty To Charges After Lesbian Relationship With Student


Nina Scott, a 28-year-old Pennsylvania teacher at a school for troubled youth, has pled guilty to a having an affair with a female student.

Scott was arrested after she had an eight-month-long sexual relationship with a 16-year-old female student. Scott, who accepted a plea deal on Monday, July 31, had faced 70 charges, including four counts of institutional sexual assault of a minor and 34 counts of corruption of minors.

According to a criminal complaint, the 28-year-old Downingtown, Pennslyvania¬†woman had said things to the student like she was buying a new headboard “for our bed.” She called her two-year-old daughter “our baby girl.” She referred to the student as her girlfriend. She mentioned “rolling over in bed and missing [the student] because she was not there.”


A former teacher has pleaded guilty in a sexual abuse case involving a former student at a school for troubled youth on the Main Line. Nina Scott, 28, of Downingtown, Chester County, was also sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to institutional sexual assault involving a 16-year-old student.

Police allege Scott sexually assaulted the girl multiple times between February and October 2016 while she taught at The Village School in Radnor Township. Police say Scott continued the relationship through letters after the girl left the school for another facility.

Authorities were alerted after staff found letters and a journal detailing the sexual acts. School officials fired Scott in December.

Scott will serve a minimum of three months on electronic home monitoring followed by five years of sex offender probation.
