26 year old Stephanie Peterson Ferri was arrested for sex with an 8th grader.

Daytona Beach, FL - A teacher at New Smyrna Beach Middle School was charged Wednesday after being accused of having sex with a 14-year-old student.

Stephanie Peterson Ferri, 26, resigned from the school on Monday after the accusations came to light.

Volusia County Sheriff's Office says that Ferri started a sexual relationship with a former male student in November 2017. Their relationship was discovered after the victim told his parents.

The victim told detectives that Ferri would pick him up at around 11 p.m. and bring him back home at 1 or 2 a.m.

The two allegedly had sexual encounters at Ferri's house while her husband, a DeLand firefighter, was at work. They also allegedly had encounters in a barn on the property of the teen's parents, according to Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Ferri and her husband are now in the process of getting a divorce.

The victim said that during the ongoing sexual abuse, Ferri bought him marijuana and bowls for smoking it. He said that she also sent him nude photos.

Ferri was arrested and charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious battery and one count of transmission of harmful materials to a minor.

At her hearing on Thursday, the state requested that her bail remain at $25,000 based on how egregious her crime was. Instead, the judge cut her bail to $12,500 and she was released after posting bail.

Ferri's attorney filed a motion to suppress her admissions, claiming that they are "obtained illegally," according to the News-Journal.

The sheriff's office is asking parents in the area to speak with their children. Parents with information of additional students victimized by Ferri have been asked to call the VCSO Child Exploitation Unit at 386-323-3574.

I know this is wrong but I would have never told my parents if I was in that kid's shoes.

So I’m guessing that if this was a 26 year old male teacher preying on a 14 year old girl that none of you would have a problem with that. Even if it was your daughter, granddaughter, sister or niece.

You men are asshats. If your daughter was being screwed by a male teacher you'd being singing a different tune.

I agree it is wrong but you know there is a difference in anatomy which makes it consensual. Keep in mind when men are teens we remember how hard it was to deal with loneliness. Those feelings can be overwhelming enough and stronger when you are a young man. Getting a date with a beauty like this is rare for many men. It is what they dream of. So please don't slight them for speaking their feelings. You might think it's all a sick joke but they are being honest. Can I say the same for people like you? And no I would not want my kids exposed to this. Anyone in this position should not be allowed to work with children. The legal system is working. However the harm done by a male teacher on a girl as apposed to a female like this on a boy is inherently different all together. I think men are saying that should always be taken into consideration. I am glad she was caught and this mentally ill woman was exposed and stopped from taking advantage of anymore children.

If she is not charged the same crime as a man would be these people need to lose their jobs.

It really gets me why this seems to be happening more often or is it that it's being reported more?

What I also don't get is why are so many teachers, counselors, and etc... prey on young children in puberty? Maybe, if they were to turn to God's Word and leave illicit substances alone, dedicate and devote their Hearts and souls to the ones they married and not stray, this issue would go away.

There are cultures where fathers take their sons to women for experience and training in how to please a woman — something really lacking in our cultural. Our cultural has a general distaste of pleasure in sex it appears sadly.
Women told they have to be married !!! Men encouraged to have m
A lot of experience. what a complicated social system.
But yes, she abused her position as an “ educator”.

The ONLY reason this made the news is because the teacher is attractive. Average or ugly women do the same thing and it's doesn't make headlines. It's all about the clicks. Same thing goes for abductions. Are you telling me no average looking plane Jane's are ever abducted? Bitch, please. If the kid or the teacher is cute...BOOM!!!>>HEADLINES!!!! (We are a shallow society. I know, because I'm shallow like that)
