Connecticut Babysitter Charged With Sexually Assaulting Second Boy
A 20-year-old Connecticut babysitter already facing charges of sexual assault on a minor is accused of having a sexual relationship with another 14-year-old boy, according to new information released today.
Loni Bouchard, of Clinton, Conn., was arrested this morning on charges of sexually assaulting a teenage boy from Southington, Conn., in November 2010. Bouchard is already facing charges of sexual assault on a different 14-year-old whom she was hired to babysit in Clinton in early 2011.
Southington police announced that they arrested Bouchard early this morning on the new charges, and that she is being held on $25,000 bail. Police did not return calls for comment.
Bouchard’s attorney said Bouchard is in counseling and hopes people will not pre-judge her, and that this second arrest strengthens the family’s resolve to have her placed in a supervisory diversionary program.
In July, Bouchard was arrested following a three month investigation into her relationship with a Clinton, Conn., boy she babysat regularly. According to police records, Bouchard repeatedly stayed over at the home of the boy, and offered him alcohol and marijuana in addition to having sex with him. When the boy’s mother discovered their relationship through Facebook messages, she notified police.
Bouchard’s journals detailing the relationship with the Clinton boy were released earlier this month.
“I know there is a 5-year age difference, but why does it have to matter?” she wrote in the journal. “I don’t care about the law. I just want to be with him and not have to hide it.”
Bouchard’s mother, Kimmy Bouchard, is also charged in providing alcohol and marijuana to the Clinton teen.
