Because of the sheer volume of these cases, perhaps you don’t recall last year’s arrest and arraignment of Allyson Brittany Moran, 27, busted for multiple rounds of sexual intercourse with a 15-year old boy she seduced at Stockbridge High School in Michigan where she was a long-term substitute chemistry teacher and girls soccer coach. As with so many of these cases, Moran was in her late 20’s, fairly recently married, and began her sexual conquest with friendly chats on social media that turned into naked photos on Snapchat, of course, and eventually the boy visiting her at her home while hubby was away for the final seduction, twice.
Moran had ditched Michigan for home turn in Decatur, Illinois upon learning of her arrest warrant, but was subsequently return to a courtroom in Lansing, Michigan where she was convicted of third degree felony sexual misconduct for rolling in the sheets with her teen student.
During the sentencing hearing this past week, Moran threw herself on the mercy of the court. Her attorney tried to mitigate her crimes by explaining her trifecta of cold marriage, miscarriage, and stress at work to explain her poor decision to find sexual comfort in the arms of a boy who’d barely begun shaving. Her attorney assured the court that Moran’s loss of a teaching career and lifetime posting on the sex offender’s registry was punishment enough for her crimes.
That was all well and good until the boy’s family spoke, about their kid’s emotional suffering, taunting at school, and many other victim fallouts. They also noted how Moran had let the boy know she was going to kill herself if he ever told the truth about their illicit affair. Pretty heavy stuff for a kid, even one who was no longer a virgin.
The judge went by the book and added a prison sentence of two to fifteen years, meaning probably a low number of years in the end, TBD. Everybody had a good cry, except for Moran’s husband who seemingly had moved several states away and is presumably in the process of seeking a legal disconnection from his sex criminal wife.
