Ruskin Teacher Accused of Having Sex with Student

A Ruskin school teacher was arrested Friday and resigned from her position with the school after she was allegedly caught having sex with a student, according to reports.

The 29-year-old woman allegedly had a high school student at her Tampa apartment Wednesday afternoon where they had consensual sex, according to the arrest affidavit.

The woman was arrested Friday on two charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

Investigators apparently met with the student who identified the woman as his English teacher and confirmed they had sexual intercourse, according to reports.

The woman was released from jail early Friday morning after posting a $30,000 bond.
