Florida teacher convicted of sex with student back on probation

A Florida middle school teacher who made national news when she was convicted of having a string of sexual encounters with a 14-year-old student has been ordered back on probation. The order reverses the stay of sentence issued in 2011 by a retiring federal court judge.

TEMPLE TERRACE, Fla. – After her twin sons were born in 2011, a middle school teacher who was convicted of having sex with a 14-year-old student, had her probation suspended temporarily.

A federal court judge, in 2011, froze the 10-year suspended sentence for Debra Lafave, who was convicted in 2005, for sexual encounters she had with a student, while she taught at the Angelo L. Greco Middle School, here. The judge, who was retiring at the time, issued the order granting her request that she be allowed to care for her twin sons, and for her mother, who had been diagnosed with cancer.

That changed Thursday, January 24, when a Florida circuit court judge reinstated probation and ordered LaFave to serve the remaining four years and two months of her sentence. A provision of the probation is a 10 p.m., to 6 a.m., curfew; an order to stay away from schools and no contact with the former victim.

The attorney for LaFave said she plans to continue appealing the conviction. LaFave garnered national interest in part because of modeling photographs taken of her before she began teaching.
