The boy is 15.

A teacher has been accused adopting her former student so she could molest him every day.  

Rayna Culver, a 43-year-old middle school teacher in New Jersey, met the now 15-year-old boy when she was his teacher at Rivera Middle School. She was hired as a climate and culture leader in September 2013, earning a salary of more than $96,000 last year.

The teacher and the boy were apparently known to have a "close relationship." 

When he was kicked out of a relative's house in 2015, she took him in. Culver became his legal guardian just a few months later.

The victim told police that one night about six months later, Culver fondled him before bedtime, stripped off his clothes, then proceeded to perform oral sex on him. They then had intercourse with the boy.

“After that first incident, they would engage in sex often," the complaint said, "and it was to the point where he felt that if he told her to stop she would get mad and kick him out of the house."

When the victim told Culver in a text message that he didn’t want to have sex anymore, and she made it clear she didn't want it to stop.

Court documents also say that the victim believes the purpose of her adopting him was so that she could eventually have sex with him. The teen said they had sexual relations almost every day over the course of several months.

When the victim came to police, he let them read text messages between him and Culver where sex was often discussed. In the boy's phone, he had Culver listed under contact name "Mom." 

Culver, who has been married for 14 years, denies all the claims. Her attorney says the complaint is completely made up. 

“The state’s theory of the case is a completely fabricated recitation made up by a troubled, young man,” her lawyer said.

Culver was arrested in May and charged with second-degree sexual assault and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child. After her first court appearance, she was released on the condition that she has no contact with the child or anyone under the age of 18.
