A Florida drama teacher is accused of raping a 15-year-old boy in the back of her car in the middle of the night.
Pamela Stigger, 33, was arrested on Thursday just moments after she allegedly had sex with her former student in the car near an intersection in Tamarac.
A police officer caught Stigger at about 2am in the back seat of the car with the boy who was allegedly naked from the waist down.
Authorities say Stigger denied having sexual contact with the boy and said he was ‘attempting to seduce her’ when police approached the car.
She told officers ‘she was only trying to mentor him’, according to her arrest report.
The boy told police that Stigger was driving him home when she pulled the car over and allegedly started kissing him.
He said Stigger told him to get into the back seat and claims they took off their clothes and had sex.
The drama teacher then got dressed and was allegedly performing a sexual act on the boy when she was caught.
Stigger is a teacher at Forest Glen Middle School and police say she had previously been the victim’s teacher. She has been working in the Broward County Schools district since 2008, NBC Miami reports.
She was charged with two counts of sexual battery and one count of lewd conduct.
Stigger faced court on Friday and bail was set at $37,500. She was ordered to wear an ankle monitor and is banned from contacting the victim.
Detectives are still investigating but they don’t believe there are any other victims.
Broward County Schools said they were investigating the incident and that Stigger had been reassigned away from the school.
They said she would not be allowed near students during the trial.
