A High School Psychologist Is Charged Over Having Sex With A Student In Classroom

Kristen Boyle (35) has been charged with raping a student in April 2018, according to Fox.

What We Know:

  • Boyle worked at La Habra High School as a psychologist.
  • According to Orange County District Attorney’s Office, she engaged in a sexual relationship with a student on the campus. At the time of the relationship, she was placed on administrative leave. At this time, no other victims have been found.
  • Boyle was arrested on September 20, 2019 and has been charged with statutory rape.
  • Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer stated “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.” Spitzer went on to talk about the power and trust psychologist have over their students.
  • The Fullerton Joint Union district officials have not commented on this.

She faces up to a maximum of three years in prison if she is convicted.
