Former Catholic elementary teacher Christina Albini has been sentenced to one year in jail after pleading guilty to sexual interference — touching the body of a person under the age of 16 for a sexual purpose.

The suspended Christ the King Catholic Elementary School teacher was arrested in July in connection with the relationship. She was taken into custody again in September after police found evidence of alleged child pornography on a cell phone.

Her sentence also includes three years of probation.

“She’s frightened to go to jail,” said Patrick Ducharme, Albini’s lawyer. “But it’s the type of crime that the government insisted that it’s serious enough that people have to go to jail and she accepts that.”

In court, the judge acknowledged Albini’s guilty plea, which spared the victim and victim’s family suffering through a prolonged trial.

“We told the prosecution from day one that this young man would never have to go through testimony,” Ducharme said. “That would be a trauma in and of itself.”

Albini would pick up the boy in her purple Dodge Challenger and take him to her home where they would have sex, according to an agreed statement of facts read in court at the beginning of May.
