A school psychologist allegedly had an illegal sexual relationship with a minor student

On September 20, 2019 a school psychologist with Fullerton Unified School District was charged with statutory rape for allegedly having sex with a minor student near Santa Ana, California.

Kristen Lynn Boyle, 35, is accused of engaging in an illegal sexual relationship with a minor in a La Habra High School classroom in April 2018. Kristen who worked as a school psychologist at La Habra High, has been on administrative leave since the relationship was discovered.

Kristen was arrested on September 20 by La Habra police following a lengthy investigation alleging that she had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student on the school’s campus. Kristen has been charged with one felony count of statutory rape.

Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer says:

“Mental health professionals wield a tremendous amount of influence over their patients. This betrayal of trust is even more egregious because she used her position to gain her victim’s trust and then exploited the therapist/patient relationship to prey on one of the very students she was entrusted with helping.”

If convicted, Kristen could face a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

The country has to do better with these people they are hiring as teachers. Maybe teachers need to start taking lie detector tests prior to hiring. The school systems are going to have to do better. I bet they turned someone down that would have been a great fit for the job but hired her because of her credentials. Now look you hired a pedophile and now you have to pay the family. SMH yall gotta do better!!
