a former connecticut high school worker and married mother of two is accused of luring an 11-year-old boy into sex acts.
alyson cranick, 42, allegedly met up with the child at least 14 times — including in her car — after the boy snuck out of his house late at night in 2022, a warrant obtained by law&crime alleges, according to fox.
the woman also allegedly made the child a bracelet with the acronym “bfflwb,” meaning “best friends for life with benefits,” according to the report.
according to the warrant, the educator allegedly told the boy on the messaging app discord to tell anyone who asked that the acronym stood for “best friends forever for life we’re better.”
the accused allegedly lured the boy from his home multiple times as late as 2 a.m., often plying him with soda and energy drinks to keep him awake, the boy told investigators.
the boy told a family member about his alleged chats with the woman on discord, imessage and snapchat.
cranick was an administrative assistant at e.o. smith high school, in mansfield, when the relative reported the alleged sexual abuse to police on september 7.
in a forensic interview, the boy claimed the woman “forced” him to have sex with her and “sexually assaulted” him.
