A church youth group leader in New Canaan is out on a $5,000 bond after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a teen.

NEW CANAAN - A church youth group leader in New Canaan is out on a $5,000 bond after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a teen.

Morgan Frawley, 25, worked with teens at Congregational Church of New Canaan.

The church says Frawley was suspended from her paid role in April when the investigation began.

Police began their investigation after getting a report from child welfare officials about the alleged sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy.

The Rev. Dr. Anne Coffman, interim senior pastor, says the church didn't tell church members about what happened and instead let police investigate. The church says it has completed its own internal investigation and believes this was an isolated incident.

Frawley is due back in court next week.
