Florida – A former New Smyrna Beach Middle School teacher was arrested today on charges that she had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student and sent him nude photos.
Volusia County sheriff’s detectives arrested 26-year-old Stephanie Peterson, (also known as Stephanie Ferri) this morning on two counts of lewd or lascivious battery and one count of transmission of harmful materials to a minor. …
The relationship is believed to have started in November. A detective responded to the victim’s family’s home Tuesday after the student disclosed the relationship to his parents. The student, an 8th grader, told detectives Peterson would send him nude photos. He said she started coming to his home at night, picking him up around 11 p.m. on several occasions and bringing him back around 1 or 2 a.m.
The victim reported that Peterson told him they couldn’t tell anyone about their relationship or they’d get in trouble. He also said she bought him marijuana and bowls for smoking it, and his grades suffered after their relationship started.
You think this life is easy? Being the world’s foremost pioneering Sex Scandal Teacher grader is not for the feint of heart. Uneasy lies the head that wears the GtNSST crown and all that. To give you a glimpse into how much I sacrifice for my craft, I spent a good portion of the morning doing a Rob Gronkowski blog, only to then have to drop everything and to snap into action with a Gronk update. Then I thought I’d relax a little in the afternoon sifting through a backlog of Sex Scandal Teacher stories looking for the most grade worthy, and wrote up a really good one. Mission accomplished, right? Wrong.
That was when I got carpet bombed with this little incendiary device. Then all the work I’d put into the earlier one will have to wait for another day. Because it’s women like Stephanie Peterson, from the great SST state of Florida, for which this little empire of mine was built. She cannot wait. Anyone else I have ready will just have to. The best laid plans …
Looks: If you study that first photo really intently for a long period of time, you might eventually spot a fish. The easiest grade of the year.
Moral Compass/Bad Judgment: How many boxes did Stephanie check? Nudes? Yup. Picking the kid up for sex? Yes. Supplied her own weed? Roger that. To be fair, his grades did suffer and we all know how those 8th grade GPAs will follow you around for the rest of your life, coming up in your college application process and every job interview. No, wait. That will never happen. No point deducted.
Intangibles: She’d pick him up at 11 p.m. and get him home at 2 a.m. and his parents needed to be told they were banging? That is the greatest combination of clueless mom and badass dad since Skyler and Walter White.
Overall: A. If Stephanie Peterson is not the power of the Starting Lineup in December, it’ll only mean 2018 was a hell of a year.
