A former Connecticut special education teacher could face up to five years in prison after she admitted to having sex with students— including one instance where she assaulted a student multiple times in a restaurant’s electrical room.
Laura Calladio Ramos, 32, of Milford, entered a no contest plea in court Monday to two counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of violating a court’s protective order.
Before submitting her plea to the court, Ramos told Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin that prosecutors “probably” had enough evidence to convict her of the counts against her.
Judge Devlin said he plans to sentence Ramos to up to five years in prison at her sentencing scheduled for late January.
If Ramos’ case went to trial, she could have faced up to 25 years behind bars if convicted, the Connecticut Post reported.
Authorities charged Ramos with two counts of second-degree sexual assault after she allegedly told police she had sex with an 18-year-old special education student in her vehicle “multiple times” between December 2016 and April 2017.
Police announced that they found her driving around one of her alleged victims in June, violating the court’s protective order barring her from contacting her victims.
