A 24-year-old chemistry teacher at Danbury High School accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student and giving him alcohol has been fired from the school system, according to the board of education.
Kayla Mooney was arrested at the end of March and charged with second-degree sexual assault and distributing alcohol to a minor. Police said they began investigating after high school administrators contacted them in February.
Mooney is accused of having sex with the student on two separate occasions.
She was placed on paid administrative leave following her arrest and has since been fired, according to the Danbury Boar of Education.
Mooney is due back in court May 27.
