Is it just more widely reported now or is there an epidemic of female teachers having sex with their students?
A former Florida substitute teacher accused of repeatedly having sex with her 14-year-old student was rearrested Tuesday for allegedly trying to destroy evidence on her phone.
Sara Moore, 35, was freed from Osceola County Jail on January 7 after a judge set her bond at $100,000 on 10 counts of sexual activity with a child between the ages of 14 and 18.
According to a police report, on Tuesday afternoon Moore walked into a Verizon store in St Cloud asking a sales clerk to help her remotely delete data from her phone.
The woman’s phone has been seized by police as evidence in the sexual battery case, and detectives were awaiting a search warrant to access the information stored on the device.
While at the Verizon store, the substitute teacher allegedly revealed that she was in trouble with the law, prompting an employee to contact the authorities after having looked up her name online.
When police retrieved Moore’s phone from the evidence room, they discovered that the security code had been changed, the report stated, according to WFTV.
Investigators asked the ex-teacher to unlock the device, but she said she did not know the passcode combination.
According to the police report, the 35-year-old further claimed that she went to the Verizon store to delete information from her daughter’s phone.
We suspect her teaching career may well be over.
