Summary:
Lisa Lavoie was a 24-year-old
teacher at Maurice A. Donahue Elementary School in Holyoke, MA. On February 13, 2009, an eighth-grade student's parents asked the school to investigate the relationship between Lavoie and their son. However, when school officials tried to question her, she and the the 15-year-old boy disappeared. On what Lavoie's lawyer would later call a "meandering" road trip, the duo drove up and down the East Coast for two weeks, driving through Vermont, New Hampshire, Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania as police continued to search for the pair. They were discovered by West Virginia local authorities on February 23, 2009. In June of 2009, Lavoie was indicted for six counts of statutory rape and one count of enticing a minor, and was charged at a later date with three further counts of aggravated rape and abuse and three counts of statutory rape.

UPDATE: On Jan. 26, 2011, Lisa Lavoie was sentenced to five years probation after pleading guilty to three counts of statutory rape and one count of enticing a minor under the age of 16. Part of her probation dictates that Lavoie is not to have any contact with the boy or his family.
