Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By REX ROW­LANDS

A SCHOOL bus driver found guilty of hav­ing sex with a 15-year-old stu­dent told po­lice she was help­ing the boy sat­isfy his cu­rios­ity about sex.

Tracy Al­lan­son, 44, told cops she “was try­ing to be a friend to him” and he was “hav­ing trou­ble at home” when she be­gan the two year re­la­tion­ship while she was his bus driver at Ch­ester Mid­dle School, a court heard

On at least one oc­ca­sion, Al­lan­son and the teen went into a wood with a blan­ket where she per­formed oral sex on the boy and al­lowed him to fon­dle her gen­i­tals.

“He wanted to know what it felt like,” Al­lan­son told in­ves­ti­ga­tors, af­ter ini­tially deny­ing any sex­ual con­tact.

She now faces up to five years in prison af­ter plead­ing guilty to one felony count of tak­ing in­de­cent lib­er­ties with a mi­nor while in a cus­to­dial role.

She is due to be sen­tenced on June 7.

The boy’s mother dis­cov­ered the il­licit re­la­tion­ship af­ter find­ing fully clothed pho­tos of Al­lan­son on her son’s com­puter flash drive that was la­belled ‘The love of my life.’

The mother also re­cov­ered three pairs of women’s panties that her son tried to hide.

Al­lan­son met the boy in 2008 when he was in mid­dle school and the two traded phone num­bers and ex­changed text mes­sages.

Af­ter her hus­band dis­cov­ered the texts, she switched to email, set­ting up an ac­count un­der the boy’s name.

In­fat­u­ated

The boy, who can’t be named for le­gal rea­sons, ini­tially de­nied the re­la­tion­ship when ques­tioned by po­lice, but later de­scribed their sex­ual en­counter in the woods.

She told po­lice in Ch­ester­field, Virginia, that she wasn’t in love with the teen, now 17, but that he was in­fat­u­ated with her.

Al­lan­son was sus­pended from her job with­out pay im­me­di­ately af­ter her ar­rest in Oc­to­ber and now – fol­low­ing her guilty plea – school of­fi­cials will seek to ter­mi­nate her em­ploy­ment, a spokesman said.

FRIENDLY: Al­lan­son
