Teacher accused of sexual relationship with female student

As a parent, one of the things you may be worried about is predators in the school system your child attends. It's very important to report any odd behavior or claims your child makes, because it could lead to finding out about dangerous behavior on the part of teachers or other school officials.

A middle school teacher from Florida is facing a sex charge for accusations that he was having a sexual relationship with one of his students. The Bay County Sheriff's Office reported that the 29-year-old man is facing a charge of lewd and lascivious battery.

The teacher, who worked at Everitt Middle School, allegedly began the relationship with one of his students at the beginning of the 2015 school year. He allegedly met the victim in 2015 and continue to meet with her after the school year ended. The victim has said that she met the teacher at an area on Highway 77 and Crooked Lane, going as far as to travelling into a wooded area with him.

At that point, she reported that they only talked. It was later in the summer when the relationship began to cross boundaries and become inappropriate. They had sexual contact once when school started, but since then no other sexual contact has been reported. Both the minor and the teacher continued to talk to one another in the meantime.

The teacher does not have a criminal history in Bay County and has been employed with several other schools where he had no other previous incidents reported against him, according to the school's representative. If you find out that your child has been in a forced sexual relationship with a teacher or was touched inappropriately, it's wise to report the incident to the school and to discuss the case with a legal professional.
