Ex-teacher's aide accused of relationship with students headed to trial

A former teacher's aide from Stratford accused of having a sexual relationship with two teenaged boys has reportedly rejected a plea deal, and her case is now headed to trial.

 

Police say Kyle Damato-Kushel, 46, was arrested late last year.



She was charged in both Stratford and Trumbull for allegedly having a sexual relationship with the teens dating back to 2014.



Police say one victim was 15 and the other was 16 at the time.



Damato-Kushel was a teacher's aide at Wooster Middle School.
