Stephanie Cobb, from Volusia County, Florida, was arrested yesterday and charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
The 26-year-old resigned in December after she made a 911 call to report that a friend was sending her suicidal text messages.
The anonymous call was traced to Cobb’s cell phone. She had given police the 16-year-old’s name, address and phone number, though when deputies went to the boy’s home he denied feeling suicidal.
Family members told investigators he was in a relationship and that he was ‘in over his head’, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
When she was questioned by investigators about whether or not her and the student hugged and kissed, she paused and said: ‘I don’t recall.’
When the teen was interviewed by police, he admitted they were in a relationship, that they had sex inside her car and said they were in love.
He said the relationship blossomed when he started talking to her about college plans. It got to the stage where he was visiting her every day in her classroom.
Phone records showed that the pair had traded more than 12,000 text messages and talked on the phone more than 500 times over four months.
Cobb was listed in his phone under ‘My Precious Angel’.
Cobb resigned the day after the 911 call, deputies say. She was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Volusia County Jail. Her bail was set at $25,000.
