Florida teacher arrested on charges of having sex with 14-year-old student

A middle-school teacher in Florida has been charged with having sex with a 14-year-old student. Police in Tampa say Debra Beasley Lafave had sex with the boy in a classroom, her apartment and in her SUV while the boy's 15-year-old cousin drove. Her lawyer had no comment. The boy told investigators that he and Lafave got to know each other during a class trip last month. She allegedly told him that her months-old marriage was in trouble, and she was attracted to him because having sex with him was forbidden. Their sexual relationship allegedly began June third. Lafave had been teaching reading. She worked with the Hillsborough County school system for two years. Now she's on administrative duty and could be suspended without pay.
