Florida Teachers and Sex Crimes

A recent article in the Orlando Sentinel addressed the increasing rate of sex crimes committed by teachers in Florida. Around 150 teachers have been accused and disciplined during the last 3 years. They have all been accused of having improper sexual contact with their students.

The United States Department of Education estimates that 10% of American public school students have been exposed to sexual attention from school employees.

In this “information age”, with email and text messaging being used so frequently, there is often a paper trail of this sexual contact. Teachers in Florida have been charged with Sexual Battery, Lewd and Lascivious Conduct, among other sex charges.
