TAMPA, Fla. – A former Florida teacher who had sex with a 14-year-old student wants to be allowed supervised contact with the children of her relatives and friends.
Former Tampa-area teacher Debra LaFave is serving seven years probation, and one of the conditions is a ban on contact with children. Her motion to ease that restriction is expected to be heard in court Thursday.
Lafave served more than 2 1/2 years of house arrest before being freed last year. She pleaded guilty in 2006 to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery for having sex with the boy in a classroom and her home.
The case became tabloid fodder at several turns. LaFave had posed in skimpy outfits for modeling shoots, and her lawyer once suggested the blonde was too attractive to go to jail.
