Former Bucks County Band Teacher Admits to Sex With Teenage Student

A former band teacher in the Central Bucks County School District admitted to having sex with a teenage boy over a six-month period.

Bridgett Szychulski, 31, carried on the sexual relationship with a 14-year-old Lenape Middle School student in 2012, police said. She was a band teacher at Central Bucks High School South and pregnant at the time of her arrest last year.

Szychulski was accused of having sex with the boy three times and sending him lewd text messages.

In Bucks County Common Pleas Court Tuesday, the Northeast Philadelphia woman entered a guilty plea to charges of statutory sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault on a minor, reported the Bucks County Courier Times.

She remained free on bail awaiting sentencing. The paper reported she could face up to three years behind bars.

The investigation began in September after a tip to a child-abuse hotline.

The teacher, who was pregnant at the time of her arrest, was suspended from her teaching duties in the Central Bucks district.
