Mooney unwittingly sparked an investigation when she complained to police that the boy's girlfriend was harassing her.
The crime occurred in Connecticut where Mooney taught at Danbury High School and was reported April 27, 2015.
• Female teachers who engage in inappropriate relations with male students affect them emotionally and often create serious problems that affect future relationships.
• Government schools appear to be one of the most dangerous places for children, not only due to student violence, but the epidemic of sexual assaults by teachers.
• Almost every day we read of government school teachers being arrested for molesting students. We can help but wonder how many more such crimes are being committed in which predatory teachers get away with their crimes.

A 24-year-old high school science teacher who was arrested for allegedly having sex with a male student and providing him with alcohol appeared in court on Monday.
Kayla Mooney, of Danbury, Connecticut, was charged on March 31 after a seven-week police investigation into a complaint she made about being harassed by the boy’s girlfriend to school officials.
Kayla Mooney, who was in her first year teaching science at Danbury High School turned herself in to police.
The boy involved with Mooney told police about the sexual relationship they had off campus last year, which appear to be supported by emails between the pair.
Mooney was placed on administrative leave in February and has not commented on the allegations, according to CBS New York.
Though she appeared in Danbury Superior Court on Monday, her arraignment on charges of second-degree sexual assault and distributing alcohol to a minor was postponed because her attorney requested evidence from prosecutors.
Sal Pascarella, the superintendent of schools, sent high school parents a message last month to inform them of the teacher's arrest.
'We are all very disappointed that this has happened to one of our faculty members,' Pascarella said, but added: 'Obviously, there is a whole process we have to go through with this investigation. At this point, these are allegations.'
