SOMERVILLE (CBS) A Somerville teacher has been arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old child.
Alexandra Romanos, 41, of Stoneham, was arraigned Wednesday on two counts of aggravated rape of a child, and three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.
According to the DAs office, a parent tipped off the school department last month about the teachers alleged relationship with a 13-year-old, which had been ongoing since March and had occurred both on and off school grounds.
Romanos taught 5th graders at the East Somerville Community School, and has worked there for seven years.
A judge ordered Romanos held on $50,000 bail, according to the DAs office. If she does post bail, she is prohibited from having contact with the victim or the victims family and cannot have unsupervised contact with children under 16. She must also stay away from Somerville schools, wear a GPS monitor and remain under house arrest.

No photo: No verdict.
At this rate pretty soon men won’t be able to claim to have the market on sexual deviancy cornered.
No information on the evidence, if any.
If this is true, she needs to be in prison.
Totally agree - they take God out of the school and then can’t figure out what happened
13....unreal. She will do prison time, then again, it’s Massachusetts.
“She was born with this disease.”
A 230 grain cupro-lead injection at the base of the skull is the cure. 900 fps usually does it.
Jury is still out. 9-3 in favor of “NOT GUILTY”.
I don’t understand why women teachers wanting to do this type of thing has become so prevalent.
I don’t think it was underreported in the past...I think it a new phenomena.
I went to Catholic schools where the nuns were tossing against blackboards.
I find it difficult to call this abuse.
Criminal yes, abuse no.
My knuckles still remember the discipline of that long wooden ruler smacking down on them. I think I was busy talking about what I was having for lunch, when BAM!
According to the John Jay Report, the rate of sexual abuse among government school teachers is 5-10%, ministers 2-3%, and priests 1-2%.
I dunno...judging by post #4, I think I’d rather eat the hot dog...
This is taking “education” a bit too far. Oh, those hard-working, underpaid “educators”...a laugh a minute.
Somerville is a wanna-be Cambridge.
We don’t know if the victim was a boy or a girl. It could have been a homosexual sexual situation.
I think part of it is the changes in society in last 40 to 50 years.
Part of that has to do with sexual boundaries. Sexual boundaries of any kind have dissolved since the sexual revolution of the ‘60s.
This girl, being in her 40s, grew up in a culture in which it’s considered okay to have sex with anybody, any number of partners, any gender of partners. There are no sexual taboos anymore. Yes I know adult child sex is illegal, but to the twisted minds who have been raised in a sexually permissive culture, legalities such as those don’t matter.
Add in the overlay of homosexuality in the schools, such as Gay Straight Alliance Clubs in so many schools, and you have a situation in which the adults, teachers, just don’t see any moral or ethical boundaries regarding their sexual behavior.
Disease? Are you kidding?
She's a morally bankrupt pervert who refuses to control her deviant urges.
Mug shots are the tip of the iceberg. I’m betting on guilty. Not to mention someone this twisted has got to be psycho to start with.
I know you are correct. It’s another sign of our very troubled times I guess...sigh.
(I think that was sarcasm.)
If that’s the case, El Zoro, I apologize.
Sheesh, I’m on a hair trigger these days...
>I dont think it was underreported in the past...I think it a new phenomena.
The “new phenomena” are selfies and text messages. Moms (always moms) discover them more readily and the evidence stands up in court. The boys never report it and never will (except bragging to friends) and if it was discovered before, lack of evidence resulted in it being handled discretely.
They're getting better, but they still managed to snag that guilty DA at least twice.
Killjoy! We don't need no stinkin' evidence. Her life's ruined already, let's just string her up!
Google "Amirault". Just do it.
I do know about that case. Remember it well.
That's why I'm skeptical of ANY charges involving kids & sex. Evil prosecutors ruin lives and bask in the glory. And most Americans just cheer them on, assuming that lawmen always tell the truth.
News operations should show the same restraint in naming the accused as they do the victims. Too many of these cases are bogus.
Why they need free birth control and abortions.
A 13-year-old - fifth grader?
What’s wrong with this picture?
Good points, but if she did do it.....wow. Nothing surprises me any longer these days I’m afraid.
I see that now. Again, sorry. I need to unwind a bit, LOL.
