DANBURY, Conn. -- An attorney for the former Danbury High School teacher accused of having sex with a student said her client, Kayla Mooney, regrets making friends with the student, but never had sex with him, according to WLAD.com.

Her attorney said during opening statements of her trial that Mooney, who is charged with three counts of second degree sexual assault for having sex with a 17-year-old student in her class, said she should have known better to than to make friends with a student, said WLAD.com.

State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky cast a different light on the relationship during his opening statement, saying it began as friendship that turned sexual and evidence would show Mooney is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, added WLAD.com.
