Police have arrested a special education teacher in Florida for allegedly having s*x with her son’s 15-year-old friend ‘several hundred times’.
Susan Weddle, 40, resigned on Monday from her position as a learning resource specialist at the J.E. Hall Center in Escambia County, a special needs school.
As part of the investigation, the Department of Children and Families interviewed the teenager who admitted to having s*x with Weddle ‘hundreds of times’.
The relationship, which lasted for more than a year, started after Weddle got drunk with the teenager after a football game her son had been playing in, according to police reports.
The son’s friend said that he coaxed Weddle into sleeping with him once he was intoxicated. She protested, saying it was wrong, but then gave in to his advances.
‘Weddle was his first and only s*xual partner, and he believed himself to be in love with her,’ police reports said.
Police said the couple met for s*xual rendezvous at both of their homes, in her car and at the beach.
It’s reported that the ex-teacher furnished him with gifts during their tryst, including an iPhone, a necklace and a bracelet.
Before her role at the J.E. Hall Center, Weddle worked as a teacher at L.D. McArthur Elementary School.
News of the relationship came to light after a counselor from Tate High School reported the incident to the DCF.
They had been shown damning text messages sent between Weddle and the boy.
Another witness said the 15-year-old had shown him nude photos of the mother on his phone.
One witness was a contractor hired to pressure wash Weddle’s home who informed the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office of the two canoodling in April.
