A former special education teacher in Connecticut who reportedly had sex with students was busted in a vehicle with one of her purported victims — despite an order of protection forbidding her from having contact with the student.

Laura Calladio Ramos, 32, was stopped by police on June 22nd in Waterford after an officer noticed her talking on her phone while driving. Police then learned that one of Ramos’ victims in her pending sexual assault case was in the vehicle with her, according to the Connecticut Post.

Ramos, who left her position at Central High School in Bridgeport, was charged with violation of a protective order requiring that she have no contact with two students in the case. Authorities believe Ramos may have sexually assaulted other teens as well.

Ramos, whose husband recently divorced her and took custody of their 2-year-old child, is awaiting trial on two counts of second-degree sexual assault. Investigators claimed that Ramos sexually assaulted an 18-year-old special-ed student between December 2016 and April 2017 and a second student multiple times at a restaurant in Shelton, where a student told officers they had sex in the establishment’s electrical room after Ramos told him her husband no longer wanted to have sex with her.

The student told officers that he later received a message from Ramos telling him it was the best sex she’s ever had.

Ramos, whose husband attended her first arraignment, confessed after her arrest in a videotaped statement that she had sex with the 18-year-old a “handful of times” between December 2016 until April 2017, usually in the car.

Ramos, who is free on $50,000 bond, is expected to make another court appearance on Thursday before Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin.

“Ramos has faithfully attended every appearance and will continue to do so,” Ramos’ lawyer, Edward Gavin, told the Connecticut Post. “We will address the motion [to revoke her bond] at the hearing.”
