A former Delaware middle school teacher was sentenced this week for having sex with her 13 year-old student.
Stephanie L. Seabury, 23, was an English teacher at Fifer Middle School in Camden before her victim told police in March that she had engaged in a sexual relationship with him. The boy admitted that he had had sex with his teacher at her home on February 26. School security footage from this day shows Seabury and the boy walking towards her car.
Seabury pled guilty on Wednesday to one count of sexual abuse of a child by a person in a position of trust or authority. She was sentenced to probation, and will have to register as a sex offender.
Seabury could not be reached for comment, but a man who answered the phone at her family home in Hauppauge, New York told reporters to call her lawyer with questions. When asked who her lawyer is, the anonymous man had some strong words.
“You should be able to find out at the courthouse,” he said. “She’s innocent.”
Do you think Seabury deserved a worse punishment than probation? Sound off in the comments below!
