Police say Damato-Kushell’s first victim told officers she had sex with his 16-year-old friend in August 2014.

Police say the former aide at Wooster Middle School in Stratford had sexual contact with both boys after picking them up and taking them to a Marriott Hotel in Trumbull. Damato-Kushel’s two daughters, now ages 8 and 15, were allegedly present in the room.

Damato-Kushell’s attorney told police she refused to be interviewed regarding the new charges.
