Windsor teacher pleads guilty to sex with student

Elementary school teacher Christina Marie Albini befriended a former student when he was 13. By his 14th birthday, they were having sex.

Albini, 43, pleaded guilty Monday to sexual interference. Other charges, including sexual assault, luring, possessing and accessing child pornography and making sexually explicit material available to a child under the age of 16 are expected to be withdrawn at her sentencing hearing next month.

The former Christ the King teacher is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in jail, said her lawyer Patrick Ducharme, after Albini’s court appearance Monday. Ducharme declined to say if he will make a bid for Albini to serve her sentence on house arrest.
