WORCESTER - A former female sex ed teacher at North Central Charter Essential School in Fitchburg was arraigned in Worcester Superior Court Friday afternoon on charges she raped a 14-year-old male student multiple times.

Rachelle Gendron, 27, of 4 Sheridan St., Fitchburg, was indicted on charges of enticement of a child under 16-years-old and five counts of rape aggravated by age difference, said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.'s spokesman Timothy J. Connolly. The charges carry a state mandated 10-year sentence.

Gendron appeared in court handcuffed and crying. She was still crying as she signed paperwork for her $2,000 cash bail in the clerk magistrate's office afterward.

She has been fired from her job at the school, where she worked as a health and sex education teacher for five years.

"As a result of the investigation she is no longer working there," Riddle said.

Gendron pleaded not guilty to the charges.

According to the indictments in the clerk's office, Gendron had sex with the boy three times in October of 2012, once in January and again in March of 2013. Sometime from April to March she enticed the boy, one indictment alleged.

Assistant District Attorney Cheryl Riddle requested a $5,000 bail. Defense attorney Andrea Levy asked for no bail on the promise Gendron return for her next court day Oct. 10. Judge James R. Lemire settled on $2,000.

Gendron is not allowed to contact the victim, not allowed to teach or have contact with children under 16-years-old, and must abide by a harassment order issued in Fitchburg District Court.

Fitchburg Police Department detectives David Daigle and Sgt. Ernest Martineau attended the arraignment but did not comment.

Investigators conducted forensic studies on Gendron and the victim's cell phones, Riddle said. The investigation uncovered text messages between teacher and student "in various states of undress with genitals and breasts exposed," according to Riddle.
The student is no longer enrolled at the school, according to principal Stephanie Davolos.

The school issued a statement following the arraignment.

"The North Central Charter Essential School's highest priority is the safety and well-being of our students, and we are both shocked and concerned by the allegations against the former employee in question," the statement said. "Upon first learning of those allegations, we took prompt and appropriate action consistent with the best interests of our students, which included swiftly terminating the individual and fully cooperating with law enforcement authorities investigating this matter."

Gendron has no prior criminal record, according to a courtroom clerk.

After the arraignment, Gendron's attorney said her client "maintains her innocence and intends to defend" herself in court.

Gendron's father declined to comment on the charges.

Gendron began teaching at the school n 2008. A graduate of Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., Gendron earned her B.A. in English and studio art (Summa Cum Laude).

Gendron is a sister of Phi Beta Kappa and "enjoys sleeping late, singing opera, healthy excess and anything 'impractical,'" according to an online profile.

Just think about it for a second. Growing up as a kid we didn't have a 'Sex ED' teacher. We just had our parents saying 'Don't knock her up!'. I wouldn't have let my kids go to a 'Sex Ed' class in school. What is the exam like?'OK the penis goes into what?'. Wow I know this one so I get an A+!!!!!!

You can't rape the willing. He was sexting her and she was sexting him. I hate to say it but when you are a 14 year old boy you would screw a wood pile if someone told there was a wet beaver in it.

Exactly, just for the bragging rights too, plus he is now the big man on campus.

I was alone and scared when I lost my virginity, at least he had something else other than his hand.

Nothing wrong with learning from a mature girl but as he gets older he should know always keep them around 25 years old even when he is 40 or 50.

A woman older than 25 becomes to possessive, demanding and bitchy.

I don't understand society. Mike Tyson admits he tried to have sex with an eleven year old girl and he's applauded for his honesty and put on a pedestal. This teacher made this kids wildest dreams come true and she is prosecuted and considered the Devil?

Would you say the same if it was a 14year old girl and a 27 year old man?? Is that ok ???

The point is someone was 14 years old and it makes no difference whether or not they were willing. An authority figure and a minor = jailtime. Period. There is no such thing as "willing" when you are a minor, that is why they define an age statute. There is no grey area here. Makes no difference the sex of the minor. Picture if the teacher had been male and the 14 year old also male - is it still cute and funny to you? It is Jerry Sandusky. Keep joking. It is predatory whether the minor was coming on or not.
