Teacher Aide Charged After Raping 15-Year-Old Special Needs Student

A 24-year-old New York teacher’s aide was caught with her pants down, and has been charged with both criminal sex act and felony rape. The upstate woman had oral sex and sexual intercourse with a special needs student who was only 15-years-old.

Alexandra Culhane, the now FORMER teacher’s aide for Northeast Parent and Child Society School, was charged on Monday and taken into police custody.

According to the Albany Times-Union, allegations of sexual misconduct with the 15-year-old first surfaced last year, when colleagues of the suspect reported their suspicions to the Schenectady Police Department; the report triggered a months-long investigation.

Daily Mail said, “A representative of the company said Culhane had worked for them for about a year. She had been placed on administrative leave at the outset of the criminal investigation last year, and was fired in February 2017.”

Cullhane’s Linkedin profile says she coached girls’ JV field hockey at Scotia-Glenville High School, her alma mater, in the fall of 2015 and 2016.

Her arraignment is set for July 3.
