Florida Middle School Teacher Cops Plea for Sex with Student. Judge Gives Hell To 15-year-old "Stool Pigeon."


TAMPA, FL--Middle school teacher and model Debra Lafave was sentenced to three years of house arrest and ordered to register as a sex offender after she pled guilty to engaging in sexual relations with a 14-year old male pupil.

25-year old Lafave escaped prison after the minor's family, wishing to avoid an emotionally-scarring trial, accepted her attorney's 11th hour plea bargain offer.

Lafave, a self-professed unhappy newlywed, met her student-victim at a flag football game at school. She eventually had sex with him in the classroom, at her home and, on more than one occasion, in the back seat of a car driven by the victim's 15-year old cousin.

When the cousin told what he'd seen to his mother, Lafave was swiftly arrested, and the ensuing scandal rocked the Tampa community and the nation, at large.

In Tuesday's hearing, the judge sharply rebuked Lafave before prounouncing sentence, but he saved his harshest words for the victim's 15-year old cousin who first brought the matter to light.

"What's the matter with you?" barked the judge to the boy. "Didn't you get that Christmas had come early for your friend?"

The judge sentenced the surprised teenager to 100 hours of community service, but stipulated nothing easy "like planting flowers or sweeping up."

"I want you digging latrines!" he snapped.
