It has been a while since we've written about a teacher-student sex scandal, but, naturally, one of the most recent examples of the disgusting act is one of the most bizarre.
According to DailyMail, a 34-year-old art teacher named Valerie Valvo admitted to having sex with a 17-year-old male student as many six times—but only after the two smoked pot and got drunk to "set the mood."
Deputies said in a release that on Wednesday, 'Hernando County Sheriff's detectives received information concerning a possible inappropriate relationship that was occurring between a Central High School teacher and a student at the school.
"Detectives responded to the school to interview the male student."
"During the interview, the student advised detectives that he had engaged in sexual relations with the teacher, at her home in Spring Hill, on at least three occasions."
Valvo 'agreed to respond to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office to be interviewed by detectives,' deputies said.
They said that the art teacher 'admitted to engaging in sexual relations with the student (victim) five to six times'.
Deputies added: 'Both parties advised the relationship was consensual (a juvenile 17 years of age cannot consent to a sexual relationship with an adult).
"Both parties admitted to using both marijuana and alcohol while at Valvo's residence."
Currently suspended with pay until further details are released following the investigation, Valerie Valvo Valvo was charged with three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She has been released from a local jail after posting $15,500 bail.
