ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) - A teacher is accused of having a sexual relationship with a high school student.
A judge issued a $150,000 bond for Susan Weddle who is accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager that lasted more than a year.
Weddle is now charged with sexual assault, lewd and lascivious behavior and using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony.
State Attorney, Bill Eddins says they’ll push for prison time.
“The total exposure, she has is up to 35 years in prison,” says Eddins.
An arrest report details the allegations.
The teen says they had sex at her house, the beach, his house and in her car.
The victim also told law enforcement Weddle was his only sexual partner and that he believed that he loved her.
At the time, Weddle was working at the J.E Hall Center Administrative Building.
The victim told law enforcement he met Weddle through her son who was a friend of his.
Eddins says this isn’t the first time his office has investigated Weddle for similar allegations with another minor.
At the time, he says she was a teacher at Tate High School.
“There was another investigation regarding an allegation she had sex with a minor a year and a half ago. However, that investigation was thoroughly conducted, all the leads were exhausted. I reviewed the report and the officers were unable to determine if a crime had been committed,” says Eddins.
In the latest report, a witness says he saw the victim and Weddle kissing in her kitchen while he was over doing housework for her.
The victim states he also saw naked pictures of Weddle which she sent to the victim’s cell phone.
Eddins says both Weddle and the victim’s cell phones have been seized.
Eddins says this case is still under investigation and more charges could follow.
