TAMPA - A Tampa-area middle school teacher is under arrest, accused of having sex with a student.
A Tampa Florida area middle school teacher is under arrest, accused of having sex with a student.
Reading teacher Debra Beasley LaFave, 23, is a newlywed who is accused of performing oral sex on a 14-year-old student at Greco Middle School twice in the past month.
LaFave is being held in the Hillsborough County Jail on $15,000 bail.
The 2002 graduate of the University of South Florida was married 11 months ago.
Temple Terrace police said that LaFave was arrested at her home after the 14-year-old boy told his mother the allegations. LaFave was reportedly never the boy's teacher.
Seems more like a letter to Penthouse than a news story. She's a recently married, smoking hot teacher (that's a mug shot above), and she's going to chase after a 14 year old?
On the other hand, additional charges have been filed against her, and there may be another 15 year old boy involved.
Update: The Smoking Gun has the arrest reports.
Update 2: Via high school classmates:
Apparently Debbie Beasley, as she was known in high school, was quite the sexual adventurer in her younger years. She was always very well dressed and beautiful. She was a switch hitter (dating a female softball player), which meant all the guys wanted her and all the girls were jealous. Old friends were suprised that she married her high school boyfriend, as neither one of them was particularly known for fidelity.
Update 3: The National Enquirer is reporting the Lafave and Backstreek Boy Nick Carter were an item in high school. They also confirm the lesbian relationship reported above.
