In calm and soft tones, a 14-year-old Philadelphia boy told a Family Court judge on Friday about the more than 10 times that he had sex with his special-education teacher over several months this spring.
The boy was the only witness at a preliminary hearing for Stephanie Amato, 30, who taught at Ethan Allen Elementary School in Northeast Philadelphia.
Under questioning by Assistant District Attorney B.K. Jaycox, the boy said their encounters took place in her parents' home in Northeast Philadelphia, in her car while parked in an alleyway near Harbison Avenue and Levick Road, and in a park. They happened on weekends and school days, often between 10 and 11 p.m.
