Dance teacher, 24, 'raped boy, 15, and drove him to drink with her sex attacks'

A 15 year-old boy was driven to drink and vaping to cope with depression after his 24 year-old dance teacher raped him, police say. The unnamed youngster battled mental health issues after Carly Green sexually abused him after he attended her classes in Aston, Pennsylvania. She was arrested and charged last Friday.

Green had begun teaching her alleged victim when he was just 10, and is said to have begun sexually abusing him in 2018, when he was 15. The age of consent in Pennsylvania is 16. Police were called by the boy’s mother last November after he disclosed Green’s alleged rapes.

The mother said she had noticed her son become withdrawn and depressed. He had begun to drink alcohol and turn to vaping, with his grades at school also dropping. The worried mom said her son had previously been a happy and well-adjusted boy who had done well at school.

After the mother confronted her son, and he told her about the sex abuse he’d suffered, police did a forensic search of his phone. They are said to have discovered sexts from Green, as well as naked photos sent by the dance teacher.

Prosecutor Jack Stollsteimer told Chaddsfordlive that the case highlighted the toll sexual abuse can take on underage victims’ mental health. He said: ‘This is a sad case involving a teacher, as well as a family friend, abusing the trust placed in her by both the parent and the child.

‘The defendant chose to exploit the relationship of trust built over several years by engaging in a sexual relationship with the victim, knowing full well both the age of the child and the legal age of consent. The law cannot tolerate this flagrant disregard for the guardrails that we have erected to keep our children safe.’

During a police interview, the boy told police Green had abusive sexual intercourse with him at her home.

She turned herself in to police last Friday, and was charged with sexual assault of a child, and statutory sexual assault, both felonies. Green’s bond was set at $50,000, and she will appear before a judge on September 25.
