STRATFORD, Conn. — A 46-year-old former Stratford teacher’s aide pleaded not guilty Tuesday to molesting two teenage boys — one since she had been his preschool teacher, the Connecticut Post reported.

Kyle Damato-Kushel, of Overland Drive, Stratford, pleaded not guilty to two counts each of second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree sexual assault, three counts of risk of injury to a minor and tampering with a witness, and requested a jury trial in Superior Court in Bridgeport, the Post said.

Damato-Kushel, who had worked at Wooster Middle School, is accused of having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy and sexual contact with one of his friends, the Post said.

The boy said he and his friend once had sexual contact with Damato-Kushel in a hotel in Trumbull while her two daughters were present, the Post said.
