Teacher accused of sex with teen says she ‘loved’ him


New Britain, Connecticut — A Connecticut school teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student told investigators she ‘loved him.’

On February 1st, 2018 Taylor Boncal, 22, was arrested and charged with 3 counts of Sexual Assault in the second degree. The arrest stems from an investigation that began on January 12th, 2018.

Boncal, who was employed by the West Hartford School System, was accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with an 18 year old male student from a West Hartford High School.

Police say Boncal was living in New Britain during the time of their relationship.

“She stated that the victim was kind to her,” police said in the affidavit. “Boncal stated that she loved the victim and was emotional regarding her feelings for him.”

“The victim refused to provide a written statement,” police wrote. “The victim expressed concern for Boncal with regard to the outcome of this investigation.”

The West Hartford school system alerted the New Britain Police Department of the allegation and an investigation was initiated.

An arrest warrant was obtained for Boncal and she subsequently turned herself in to police. Boncal was arraigned in New Britain Superior.
