Teacher Christine McCallum charged with rape in the US
January 12, 2009
A MARRIED teacher has been charged with seven counts of statutory rape after allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old schoolboy more than 300 times – including right under her husband’s nose.
Police say Christine McCallum, 29, lived a disturbed double life for almost two years.
The Boston teacher is accused of having serial liaisons with the boy in Rockland and Abington from February 2006, when she allegedly took his virginity, to November 2007.
The boy told police they had sex for the first time on a couch at McCallum’s home while her husband slept upstairs.
They also had unprotected sex in the shower, on the kitchen floor and on the living room floor, court documents say.
The Boston Herald reports that McCallum denies all the allegations, saying she took the boy and his brother in.
“She tried to mother the child because she felt sorry for them,” her lawyer Frederick McDermott said.
Prosecutors claim McCallum weaved her way into the boy
