Franklin, of Gerri Court, in the Town of Newburgh, allegedly met the teen boy year ago when he was a 12-year-old student at Sacred Heart School in Newburgh, where Lisa Franklin worked as a substitute. Back in February, the boys parents contacted local police and told they found inappropriate text messages on his phone and became concerned about the relationship between their son and older woman.

In an indictment announced last week  Friday morning, Franklin was indicted on two counts each of predatory sexual assault on a child and first-degree rape, eleven counts of second-degree rape and several other charges.

Franklin is free on $10,000 bail.
