A 37 year old teacher nailed for having sex with a student.
And she’s no beauty.
Valerie Michelle Valvo, a teacher at Central High School in Brooksville, said she and the victim had sexual relations as many as six times, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
She and the boy have admitted to using marijuana and alcohol at the 34-year-old teacher’s home, deputies said.
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.’
Deputies said she was placed under arrest at the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office. The arrest took place Wednesday, WFLA reports.
Valvo has been charged with three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Denise Maloney with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office told WFLA: ‘She did admit that she was having a sexual relationship with the student.
‘The student is 17 years old. He’s not old enough to consent to a relationship like that.’
Deputies said: ‘Detectives remained in contact with the School Resource Officer at Central High School, as well as administrators from the Hernando County School Board, regarding the investigation.
Valvo is suspended with pay pending the investigation outcome, WFLA reports.
She posted $15,500 bail and has been released from the Hernando County Detention Center, the Florida Oracle reports.
