Allyson Brittany Moran, a 26-year-ol former substitute teacher and soccer coach at Stockbridge High School, has been scheduled to face trial on charges that she sexually assaulted a teenage student in April.
According to Michigan State Police, Moran, 26, was arrested Thursday, October 26, in Illinois. Moran, who worked as a substitute teacher and girls soccer coach at Stockbridge High School in Mason, Illinois, faces three felony counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a student and one misdemeanor count of fourth-degree criminal sexual involving a student.
Moran, a Decatur, Illinois, resident, was contracted as a long-term substitute teacher at Stockbridge High School during the 2016-2017 academic year.
According to the victim’s testimony, the victim, a teenage boy, was a student in Moran’s class last fall. The boy told his girlfriend about the incidents in July, he said, and a family member called police in August.
The boy said he frequently ate lunch in Moran’s classroom and hung out in her room after school even when the fall semester was over. Sometimes they were alone, and sometimes other students were present, he said.
In March, the two began exchanging messages on Snapchat, a social networking platform that typically erases messages and multimedia after they are viewed. Moran and the boy eventually exchanged nude pictures of themselves via Snapchat, he said.
In April, while the school was on spring break, Moran invited the boy to her home in Dansville but told him to park away from the home so her neighbors wouldn’t see his car, he testified.
When he arrived, Moran led him into a basement “man cave,” then took off her robe and kissed him, the boy said. They then went to an upstairs bedroom.
Her arraignment in Ingham County Circuit Court is scheduled for November 8.
If convicted, Moran faces up to 15 years in prison.
