Police: New Canaan Youth Leader had Sexual Relationship with Teen

A New Canaan youth group leader was arrested Friday after turning herself over to police following a warrant being issued for her arrest on charges that she was having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 15-year-old.

According to Sgt. Carol Ogrinc, 25-year-old Morgan V. Frawley, of 272 Soundview Avenue in Fairfield, was arrested Friday, October 25, after being notified of the warrant. 

New Canaan Police had received on April 23, 2013, a report from the Department of Children and Families that Frawley, a youth leader at the Congregational Church of New Canaan, was having a relationship of a sexual nature with a male youth, Ogrinc said. An investigation into the allegations determined Frawley and the youth were, in fact, involved in a sexual relationship, Ogrinc said.

Frawley was charged with one count risk of injury to a minor and released after posting a $5,000 bond. She has a court date scheduled of November 5, 2013.

Risk of injury to a minor? If this was the other way around, 22 y/o male and 15 y/o female, there would be sexual assault and possibly statutory rape charges.

A 15 y.o. male having a relationship with a 25 y.o. female? Wow, he must be the envy of all of his friends!

15 yr olds know exactly what they are doing. We don't get to see a pictures of him but I'm sure he isn't some scrawny kid that is being taken advantage of. Of course he has told his friends and yes they are envious. It takes two and if one must be punished so should the other.

Dear megan, Don't assume anything about anybody in this situation. the boy can't even drive yet , get a tattoo, or even buy pornography. How can you except somebody that young with so little life experience to make choices like these especially when it comes to a trusted authority figure

I would guess many 15 year old boys dream of naked 25 year old women. his dream allegedly came true. she seemed happy. does 15 or 16 (legal age of consent) really make that much of a difference if you step down from the high morality horse? he will be high fived for years. she will wear a scarlet M for years and her teaching career is over. back to waitressing I am afraid. at least this branch of religion has two consenting people unlike another branch which has had volumes of abuse. i just don't see that nice white building from the 1700's in the same light any more but i don't think the liability is high enough to turn it into condos and pay the 15 year old's family mucho denaro.

Why validate one "wrong" by using another "wrong" as a comparison? This is wrong, end of story.

regan killed someone, ran away and lied multiple times. megan's friend had fun, megan has not lied, and her friend has not lied. you decide. regan's judge is sly as a fox and giving regan all the time, rope and legal bills to hang herself. she will.
