A middle school teacher in Florida reportedly engaged in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old male student and sent him naked pictures.

On Wednesday, 26-year-old Stephanie Peterson was arrested and charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious battery and one count of sending harmful materials to a minor, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman, who worked as a science teacher at New Smyrna Beach Middle School – started a relationship with the 8th grader back in November.

The student told investigators on Tuesday that tryst began after she sent him the explicit photos.

He allegedly said that Peterson started driving over to his home at night and, on several occasions, picked him up at around 11 p.m. and brought him back at roughly 1 or 2 a.m. The student said that the teacher also purchased him marijuana.

The victim’s grades started to suffer after the relationship began and she told him they couldn’t tell anyone or they would be in trouble.

Authorities were informed of the relationship on Tuesday when the student told his parents.

The woman was taken into custody and was booked on a $25,000 bond.

School administrators revealed that Peterson resigned from her position on Monday.
