Authorities say a Florida high school teacher has confessed to having sex with a student at minimum of five times, as well as drank alcohol and used marijuana with him.
34-year-old Valerie Michelle Valvo, an art teacher at Central High School in Brooksville, was arrested Wednesday by deputies with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office started an investigation after getting a tip that a high school teacher was having sex with a student.
Investigators interviewed the male student, who’s 17 years old, and he told them that he’d had sex with Ms. Valvo at her home on at least three occasions.
The disgraced teacher confessed to detectives that she’d had “sexual relations” with the boy five to six times.
The two told authorities that the relationship was consensual and both admitted to using marijuana and alcohol while at Valvo’s home.
She was arrested and charged with three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Her bond was set at $15,500.
She’s been suspended with pay, pending the outcome of the investigation.
