A 28-year-old female substitute teacher at an Orlando-area private school is accused of having sex with a 16-year-old male student.
The woman faces charges of sexual activity with a 16 or 17 year old child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to an arrest affidavit, the woman was a substitute teacher at an Orlando school. The affidavit said that a representative from the school called a Florida Department of Children and Families hotline late last week to report the woman after teachers became suspicious of her relationship with the boy.
A DCF investigator looked into the claims and allegedly determined that the woman had sex with the teen at her home on the evening of Oct. 14 after exchanging Snapchat messages with him and giving him alcohol.
The woman was booked into the Orange County Jail on Friday night.
Accusations of sexual misconduct between a teacher and a student are very serious in Florida and in every other state across the country. Even if a person is not found guilty of the alleged crime, their reputation could be forever damaged. Because of this, anyone facing sex crimes charges needs to obtain a criminal defense attorney who can prepare the strongest possible defense against the charges.
