A 26-year-old middle school teacher in Florida was arrested for sending nude pictures and having sex with a 14 year old boy.
According to Fox News, Stephanie Peterson was charged Wednesday with two counts of lewd or lascivious battery. Volusia County Sheriff’s Office also reported 1 count of sending harmful materials to a minor.
The science teacher at New Smyrna Beach Middle School began the impropriate liaisons this past fall. The student revealed to investigators the relationship started with Peterson sending nude photos to the eighth grader.
Things escalated to late night visits at the 14-year-old’s home. Peterson would pick the boy up as late as 11pm bringing him back around 1am or 2am. The student claims Peterson also provided marijuana.
There was a noticeable drop in the young teens grades after the relationship. The teacher warned him not to tell others or they’d get in trouble. The boy made a confession to his parents who alerted police on Tuesday.
Stephanie Peterson was arrested and is being held on a $25,000 bond.
Peterson has been married to a firefighter named Brandon Ferri since 2015 with no children.
Representatives from New Smyrna Beach Middle School informed authorities Peterson tendered her resignation on Monday.
