Fmr. Lenape Middle School band teacher accused of sex with student

A former middle school band teacher has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old student.

Bridgett Szychulski, 31, was the band teacher for the Lenape Middle School in Doylestown, Pa. at the time of the alleged incident.

Police say Szychulski had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student in 2012.

School officials tell Action News that the district received an anonymous tip last week and suspended Szychulski the following day.

The encounters happened in her office, a storage room at the school and in Szychulski's car, investigators say.

Szychulski, of Philadelphia, has taught in the Central Bucks district for seven years.

She surrendered to police late Tuesday morning and was arraigned on Tuesday afternoon.

Szychulski is charged with deviate sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault.

She was released on $500,000 bail and was ordered not to have any contact with minors or students.

The Bucks County District Attorney's office is asking that anyone who had inappropriate contact with Szychulski call detectives as 215-348-6629.
