Woman Teacher Accused Of Sex With Student Turns Self In
Internet Broadcasting Systems and Local6.com ^ | June 28, 2004

Posted on 06/29/2004 5:44:26 AM PDT by presidio9

A 23-year-old female teacher in Tampa, Fla., was arrested Monday for the second time on charges of having sex with a 14-year-old male student.

Debra Lafave, (pictured, left) was accompanied by her new attorney, John Fitzgibbons as she surrendered to Marion County deputies in Ocala.

Lafave, who is married, is a reading teacher at Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace, just northeast of Tampa.

The new charges accuse Lafave of pursuing the 14-year-old student to Ocala, Fla., while he was visiting his 15-year-old cousin.

Detectives said Lafave had sex with the student twice in Ocala - once in the back seat of her car while the cousin drove around town and then again in the car while parked at Brick City Park.

In police statements made by the 15-year-old witness, Lafave allegedly said that she was turned-on by the fact that what she was doing was illegal, WFTS-TV reported.

Lafave has been place on administrative leave.

She has a bit of shannon doherty to her - One eye about a 1/2 inch higher than the other. I'm guessing she got caught becasue the boy was so happy he told all of his friends.

Check out the smokinggun.com . The info they have there makes it seem that they have good evidence against her. She's being held on $15,000 bail.

LOL!! You and practically every OTHER 14-year old!!! I was a 14-year old girl many moons ago...I remember what boys that age were like! I would add that I don't remember any of my teachers looking like Mrs. Lafave (although there was a great-looking football coach/PE teacher named Mr. K... uh, never mind)

I read TSG report last night. it all seemed like the boys told a story and that there was little real evidence to back them up. perhaps I missed something, but it seemed like they cooked up a story with some of their friends. this woman's career is over whether it is true or not.

I saw this on The Smoking Gun. She got caught because the parent of another student became suspicious of her behavior with this student and phoned his parents to tell them what she suspected. His parents confronted him and he admitted it. The police were called in. They had the boy call the student on a tapped phone. She made incriminating comments and was arrested.

In the back seat of a car???

All I ever got in the back seat of a car at that age was slapped!

And what the heck is a 15 year old cousin doing driving around? I thought the minimum driving age was 16?

Easy Meek - you're not 14 or 15 and Ocala is more than a day's drive away.

This is not her first exercise in this form of generosity.

She is a rare find. With experience, a woman like this should be working the men's rooms by the time she turns 27.

The kid could not be reached for comment as he was too busy receiving high-fives while being hoisted on the shoulders of his friends.

Why do I bother to post something serious on this? First, she is damn good looking which, duh, reminds us looks are deceiving and something my 12 year old daughter knows well - the "popular" girls often have rocks in their heads and constantly get in trouble.

And the all too obvious comment on society - that an attractive young woman would do this with a kid is evidence of how sexually degenerate society has become - anything for a kick and the raunchier the better.

On a serious note, this strikingly pretty woman is obviously mentally disturbed. I'd be willing to bet a paycheck on her childhood being one of sexual abuse by an older individual; there had to have been a lot of dysfunctional characteristics...I really feel sorry for her husband, family. Instead of jail, she needs a good psychiatrist to discover her illness and straighten her life. However, ban her from the classroom forever!

On a different serious note, she becomes rather less pretty the more you look at her -- something about her expression is very unpleasant.

A teacher accused of having sex with a 14-year-old student is facing new allegations that she took their intimate relationship on the road.

Greco Middle School teacher Debra Beasley Lafave, 23, is accused of having sexual intercourse with the student in her car twice while his 15-year-old cousin drove them around the Ocala area. That is in addition to previous accusations that she had sexual relations with the student at her home and classroom at Greco.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office issued an arrest warrant Friday for Lafave. She faces two additional charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a person younger than 16 and a charge of lewd and lascivious exhibition.

She is expected to turn herself in to Marion County authorities Monday. Neither Lafave nor her attorney, Fred Vollrath, returned phone calls Friday.

Lafave was arrested Monday in Temple Terrace and charged with two counts of committing lewd and lascivious battery.

A report from the Marion County Sheriff's Office reveals more details about the relationship between Lafave and the student, which included trips to Ocala, where she had sex with the teen in her car, a report states.

Field Trip Conversation

The 14-year-old Temple Terrace resident told investigators he first got to know Lafave during a school field trip to SeaWorld a week before the school year ended. On the trip back, he sat next to the teacher. ``The conversation was nothing exciting, it was just them getting to know each other,'' deputies reported, based on their interviews with the boy. Before that, the boy told deputies, he had a ``hi- bye'' relationship with Lafave.

The next week, the boy told deputies, Lafave invited him and a friend to spend detention time in her room.

One of the days, Lafave asked the boy to stay after school and she drove him to get a haircut and to the recreation center where he routinely played basketball, and then she drove him home, the report states.

On the last day of school, Lafave attended another student's party that the 14-year- old also attended, deputies said.

The boy told investigators that at that time he had no idea Lafave was attracted to him, but the teacher did give the teen her cell phone number.

At some later date, unclear to deputies, the boy said, he went to Lafave's portable classroom, where the teacher said she had been ``thinking about him a lot and ... could not get rid of the feelings, and they kissed in the portable.''

Sexual Encounter At Home

The student told deputies his first sexual encounter with Lafave occurred at her Riverview home June 3. The report states that while Lafave performed oral sex on the boy in her upstairs bedroom, the boy's cousin watched a video in the downstairs living room. Afterward, Lafave drove the boys to Ocala, deputies said. During the trip, she performed oral sex on the student in the back seat of her vehicle, the report states.

The 14-year-old also told deputies Lafave had said she was ``turned on by the fact that having sexual relations with him was not allowed.''

Deputies said the next incident happened June 14 when Lafave had sexual intercourse with the boy in her portable classroom at Greco. A day later, deputies said, Lafave drove to Ocala, where he was staying with his cousin.

Lafave drove the boys to a Smoothie King in Ocala and asked the cousin to drive them around, deputies said.

While the cousin drove, Lafave had sexual intercourse with the student in the back of the car, deputies said.

After the incident, they drove to a couple of stores so Lafave could buy an iPod for her husband, deputies said. She dropped the boys off at the cousin's house and returned to the Tampa area.

Two days later, investigators said, Lafave returned to Ocala. This time, the cousin drove Lafave and the student to Brick City Park. The cousin parked the car near a garbage bin and got out, the report states. The student again had sexual intercourse with Lafave in the back seat of the car, deputies said.

Confronting The Rumors

Lafave drove the student back to Tampa. The boy's mother confronted the student after hearing various rumors, the report states.

One of those who contacted the student's mother was his aunt in Ocala, deputies said. The aunt told investigators she overheard her son bragging about the student having sex with a ``hot teacher from his school.''

When confronted by his mother, the 14-year-old confessed to having sex with Lafave, deputies said. He told investigators he was able to identify tattoos and birthmarks on her body. The Hillsborough County jail report filed at her booking lists the same butterfly and Chinese letter tattoos identified by the boy.

If Lafave is convicted, each charge could bring up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000, according to Florida statutes.

I left high school just 3 years ago and I not one teacher comes close to looking like her. Now I know why it is not a good idea to have too beautiful a teacher in a classroom with young boys. I could just imagine running thru the halls just to make sure I would not be late for her class.

It's the thought that counts. Did she also "get a ride" to the card store?
