After parents a teacher holds the highest regard for a student. A teacher not only teaches them academic curriculum but also the values of life. The respect that exists between the two, plays a vital role in developing a positive teacher-student relationship. But unfortunately, here’s a married science teacher-student illicit relationship, where the teacher has been charged, who apparently bought drugs, had sex and texted nudes to her 14-year-old student.
Stephanie Peterson, 26, was arrested in New Smyrna, Florida, and charged for allegedly carrying out an illicit relationship with her 14-year-old male student.
The student, an 8th grader confided, that the teacher would pick him up frequently from his home and spend hours with him privately.
He further mentioned, that the teacher would send him her nude photographs and had also bought him marijuana and a ‘bowl to smoke it’.
The pair would have their illicit encounters at her house, while her husband was away at work and once, inside a barn on the boy’s parent’s property.
The boy shared with his parents, that due to his illicit relationship he began to get poor grades in school.
The boy’s parents initially tried to warn her to break off this relationship but informed the police, after she carried on with the sexual relationship.
In an investigation, it was discovered that the illicit relationship between Peterson and the boy had begun sometime in November.
The teacher happened to tell her student, never to mention to anyone about their questionable relationship.
She and her husband Brandon, who is a firefighter have been married since 2015 and do not have any children.
She has been charged with lewd or lascivious battery and one count of transmitting harmful materials to an underage.
News of the arrest was uploaded on Facebook by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Soon after, both husband and wife deleted their social media account, as soon as the news of the arrest went viral.
School officials told police that the teacher resigned from her teaching position after her illicit relationship with the student went public.
Peterson is charged and being held at the Volusia County Branch Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.
