A Wisconsin English teacher just pleaded guilty to sexual assault after she repeatedly slept with one of her 16-year-old students. One of those times was on the same night that her husband to be was at his bachelor party.
28-year-old Sara Domres pleaded guilty Thursday to two charges of sexual assault of a student by school staff; both felonies.
She’s now facing up to 12 years in jail when her sentence is handed down on September 30th.
When she was charged back in April, she’d pleaded not guilty; claiming she’d only hugged the teen when they’d met outside of school.
But court documents revealed that she started a sexual relationship with the victim during the 2014-2015 school year.
The unidentified student told authorities that he’d had sex with her 10 to 15 times.
They had sex in a parking lot in July last year, and at a Motel 6 on the night of her husbandâ€™s bachelor party, according to the criminal complaint.
Unluckily for her, investigators got confirmation that the teen’s cell phone had connected to the WiFi at the motel. Ms. Domres had paid for the room with cash.
The boy also told cops that she’d sent him selfies while she was on her honeymoon.
The saucy teacher’s husband even caught the two of them together in another parking lot, which led to a verbal confrontation.
But what started the entire investigation, which kicked off in January of this year, was one of the victimâ€™s own friends, who’d reported the relationship to cops.
When school officials found out about the allegations on two weeks later, they put her on administrative leave. They fired her later after their own internal investigation.
Authorities believe that the relationship had been going since May of last year, and to add a bit of “oh snap” to the story, it’s believed that the teen was a virgin up until the two of them started practicing the carnal arts.
Investigators found over 1,000 text messages sent between the teacher and student, who she affectionately referred to as “baby boo,” during the investigation.
“Baby Boo, I love you now & forever! Please be mine forever & ever. Always, your baby girl. P.S. Good luck on your quiz :)” one of them read.
“Hopefully you’ve been thinking of me Baby Boo. I should go because he will be home soon. I love you. Be good, think of me and no one else! Ha ha,” another read.
The two also exchanged notes, which the teen kept.
One note, which they exchanged during class, had things like:
“We will have to plan something soon. I want a night again. Xoxo.”
“Yes! Definitely soon. I really want another night with you too baby boo!”
“I want to do you 🙂 NOW!!”
Showing signs that she full well knew what she was doing was wrong, her phone, which police confiscated, showed a Google search for “what’s the prison sentence for a teacher sleeping with a student?”
In one text to the boy, she wrote, “I love you, too, baby and will forever. I’m just saying that if you ever don’t, please still love me enough as a person to know how much that’d hurt me,” she said, referring to him keeping quiet about the whole thing.
It’s not entirely clear whether or not the relationship continued after she got married…except the whole “selfies from the honeymoon” thing.
Her husband stood by his girl after she was arrested, and appeared in court with her when she’d pleaded not guilty.
It’s unclear if they’re still together since her guilty plea.
