A former middle school teacher in Florida pleaded guilty to having sex with a 14-year-student in her car and in a barn — and is now facing up to 10 years in prison.
Stephanie Peterson, 27, who previously taught at New Smyrna Beach Middle School, pleaded guilty Tuesday as part of a plea deal to lewd or lascivious battery sex act with a child and transmission of harmful material to minors by electronic means, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.
Peterson, of New Smyrna Beach, was arrested by deputies in Volusia County in February after she allegedly picked up the eighth-grade student at his home before having sex in her home and her car. They also had sex in a barn behind the student’s house between November 2017 and January, court documents show.
Grown women having sex with 14 year old boys is just another reason to repeal the 19th.
