A former Florida middle school teacher has pleaded guilty to having sex with a 14-year-old student and sending him nude pictures.

She will face a minimum of 5 years and a maximum of 10 years in prison when she is sentenced. The former New Smyrna Beach Middle School science teacher was arrested in February after the 14-year-old told his parents about their relationship.

The student confessed to his parents that Peterson would pick him up from their home at 11pm and that they often spent hours together at her home while her firefighter husband was at work.

He revealed that the teacher had sent him nude photographs of herself and that she bought him marijuana and a bowl to smoke it in.

Also he told his parents that his relationship with the teacher was hurting his grades because they were spending so much time together.
