Married Florida Teacher Admits Having Sex With Student In Backseat of Car
According to a report from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, a female teacher at a south Fort Myers school has admitted to having sex with one of her students.
The teacher involved, 35 year old Suzanne Owen, was arrested on April 11. She was released the following day on bail of US$50,000, according to a report filed by News Press.
Mrs Owen, a teacher at the Evangelical Christian School, is also married to a soccer coach at the same school. In addition, her three children are also students of the school.
The judge involved in the case ordered that Mrs Owen may not contact any minors apart from her own children, or contact anyone involved in the school, with the exception of her husband. She must wear an ankle monitor.
According to the report by News Press, investigators were made aware that Mrs Owen may have had physical contact with a student after one of her friends came forward.
Investigators subsequently interviewed both Mrs Owen and the student involved. The report from the Sheriff’s Office states that the pair exchanged communication via email and text messages before meeting in a parking lot around 3 miles away from the Evangelical Christian School.
Mrs Owen is no longer listed on the Evangelical Christian School’s website as a teacher at the school. According to the report by News Press, Owen and her attorney, Geraldo Olivo could not be immediately reached for comment on April 13.
