STRATFORD - A former Stratford elementary school teacher pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy she had been tutoring.

Police say Michelle Sulzicki began abusing the boy while tutoring him at home.

She pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a child. She faces up to four years in prison when she is sentenced.

Police suspected the victim was the father of Sulzicki's child, but her attorney tells News 12 Connecticut DNA tests have proven that is not the case.
