According to Hillsborough detectives, between January and February of this year, Connors is believed to have established a romantic/sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy, who had been a student in her classroom.
The relationship progressed over time to kissing and Connors allowing him to inappropriately touch her underneath her clothing. The relationship further progressed to the two having sex multiple times while at the school during school hours.
At times, reports wtsp, Connors even pulled him from other classes to do so.
On another occasion, Connors and the boy reportedly left the school grounds in her car and drove to his house where they had sex in his bedroom.
Connors was arrested while at her home and booked into the Hillsborough County Orient Road Jail where she is being held without bond.
The woman’s arrest comes after having only been at the school since July of last year.
Since her arrest, school officials have intimated that the woman will be fired along with being reported to the state where it is thought action will be taken against Connor’s teaching certificate.
Pursuant to the sexual predator’s arrest, Hillsborough County Schools released the following statement Friday night:
“We are disappointed. We have so many teachers who are doing a great job. This teacher had nothing in her background that indicated any problems. It’s shocking and disappointing.”
Added school district spokesman Steve Hegarty: ‘She had nothing in her background that would suggest anything like this. It’s shocking and it’s disappointing.’
There is no indication any other students are involved, however, the investigation is still ongoing. At present Megan Connors faces faces seven counts of sexual battery, along with a charge of lewd and lascivious battery and lewd conduct.
As of yet it the woman has not told why she abused her position of authority and trust to gain power and subversion over the minor.
And then there were these reactions via the web:
“Why do this? Teenage boys are just learning the finer points of bathing.”
“Lord help any women who has sexual intercourse with my son at age 15.”
“It’s funny how the men on here say “where were teachers like this when I was in school” or how this is funny. Sad because most of you probably have a daughter and if roles were reversed I think your opinion would change very quickly. I can guarantee if this was either of my children that lady wouldn’t have to worry about prison.”
“Why can’t these douche bags keep their hands (as well as other body parts) away.”
