NEW HAVEN, Connecticut — Court records say a Madison high school teacher accused of sexual assault struck up relationships with two teens.
Allison Marchese pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of sexual assault and risk of injury or impairing the morals of a minor.
The arrest warrant affidavit says a 17-year-old student told police he received a selfie of Marchese scantily dressed. The affidavit says Marchese said she sent the photo to her husband.
The affidavit also says a 15-year-old student told police Marchese wrote that she could not concentrate during class because he was so attractive.
The younger teen said Marchese messaged him "nonstop" the first week of summer vacation, including long messages expressing her feelings and trying to make him feel badly for not responding.
The English teacher is on paid leave.
