New Canaan Connecticut Youth Group Leader Accused of Inappropriate Relationship with 15 Year Old Boy

New Canaan police have arrested a church youth group leader who is accused of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy.

Police began investigating Morgan V. Frawley, 25, of Fairfield on April 23.

They said the state Department of Children and Families reached out to the department about reports that Frawley, a church youth group leader at the Congregational Church of New Canaan, was having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a teenage boy.

Police investigated and said they determined that Frawley, and the youth were involved in a sexual relationship.

"Our investigation revealed that she did commit the crime of risk of injury to a minor, but there wasn't sufficient evidence for any other charges," Police Chief Leon Krolikowski said.

She had been a youth advisor for less than two years.

Anne Coffman, senior minister of Congregational Church of New Canaan, was not affiliated with the church when police were initially alerted, but she said she had been briefed on the situation and called it tragic.

"This church and the youth program have been very careful to have policies and procedures in place to prevent this very thing from happening," Coffman said.

On Oct. 25, Frawley turned herself in at the New Canaan Police Department after being notified there was a warrant for her arrest.

"As soon as we notified her attorney that we did have a warrant, within a couple of hours she came in and turned herself in. She's been released on bond for a future court date," Krolikowski said.

Chief Krolikowski said there's no reason to believe there was risk of injury to any other juveniles in the youth group and Minister Coffman said the church, which has about 400 members, has extended its support.

"Our prayers are really with the alleged victim in this case and their family," Coffman said.
