The fiancé of Madi­son Bergmann, a Wis­con­sin ele­men­tary school teacher arrest­ed for alleged­ly “mak­ing out” with a fifth-grade stu­dent, has called off their wedding. 

The rev­e­la­tion of Bergman­n’s rela­tion­ship with an 11-year-old stu­dent led to the deci­sion, accord­ing to one of her fiancé’s friends.

The cou­ple, Madi­son Bergmann and Sam Hick­man, were sched­uled to mar­ry in July. How­ev­er, their wed­ding page on the pop­u­lar mar­riage web­site The Knot has been removed fol­low­ing Bergman­n’s arrest. The mutu­al deci­sion to post­pone the wed­ding indef­i­nite­ly has left Hick­man “real­ly upset and heart­bro­ken,” the friend said.

Bergmann, 24, was arrest­ed after the vic­tim’s par­ents dis­cov­ered text mes­sages between her and their son. Charg­ing doc­u­ments state that the boy’s father con­front­ed Bergmann at Riv­er Crest Ele­men­tary School with print­outs of the con­ver­sa­tions, prompt­ing an investigation.

The text mes­sages detailed inti­mate encoun­ters between Bergmann and the stu­dent inside the class­room dur­ing lunch or after school. Bergmann also told the boy how much she enjoyed their phys­i­cal con­tact and “mak­ing out.” Police found addi­tion­al evi­dence in Bergman­n’s bag, includ­ing a fold­er with the vic­tim’s name con­tain­ing hand­writ­ten notes about their kissing.

Bergmann alleged­ly obtained the stu­den­t’s phone num­ber from his moth­er in Decem­ber when the fam­i­ly invit­ed Bergmann to join them for win­ter break. This was the same month Bergmann became engaged to Hick­man, as seen on her social media.

Madi­son Bergmann has since been placed on admin­is­tra­tive leave by the Hud­son School Dis­trict and is barred from con­tact­ing any dis­trict stu­dents, par­ents, or staff. She is charged with one count of first-degree child sex­u­al assault and has been released on a $25,000 sig­na­ture bond.
