DEBRA LAFAVE PICTURES: THE TAMPA MRS. ROBINSON; TEACHER AND STUDENT TRYST; LAFAVE (NEE BEASLEY) TURNING HERSELF IN FOR HAVING SEX WITH STUDENT 

This is one of those crazy water cooler stories. Yikes.

CNN.com: Teacher charged with having sex with 14-year-old student


Marion County Mugshot (Hillsborough County mugshot is below)
TAMPA, Fla. -- A 23-year-old middle-school teacher was charged with having sex with a 14-year-old student in a classroom, at her apartment and, once, in a vehicle while the teen's 15-year-old cousin drove.


Reading teacher Debra Beasley LaFave, 23, is a newlywed who is accused of performing oral sex on a 14-year-old student at Greco Middle School twice in the past month



Detectives said that the cousins provided matching statements incriminating Debra Beasley Lafave and that the 14-year-old described Lafave's apartment and her tattoos and birthmarks.

Lafave, who teaches reading in the Tampa suburb of Temple Terrace, was arrested there last week on lewd and lascivious battery charges, accused of having sex with the teen earlier this month at her apartment and in a portable classroom at Greco Middle School.

She was out on bond on those charges when she turned herself in Monday in Marion County, about 80 miles north of Tampa, where the cousin lives. There, she is charged with lewd and lascivious battery and exhibition. She was released Monday on $25,000 bail.

Her lawyer, John Fitzgibbons, said he was not ready to respond to the allegations. "There is a presumption of innocence in this country," he said.

The teen told investigators that he and Lafave got to know each other during a class trip last month, and their sexual relationship began June 3.

The boy told detectives that Lafave told him that her months-old marriage was in trouble and that she was attracted to him because having sex with him was not allowed.

Lafave, who has worked with the Hillsborough County school system for two years, has been placed on administrative duty and could be suspended without pay at the next school board meeting, officials said.

In Marion County, authorities say Lafave had sex with the student in the back of her sport utility vehicle while the cousin drove them around the Ocala area.

DAILY 7: FAHRENHEIT 9/11 FACTS OR FICTION; GOOD ECONOMY; IRAQ ELECTIONS ASAP; MATTIE STEPANEK; CHICAGO PORCH COLLAPSE; POVERTY; YANKEES V RED SOX 


Veni Vidi Vici... The conquering hero

1. TRUTH OR DARE: The Truth About 'Fahrenheit 9/11'
Moore shows prominent members of the Taliban visiting Texas, implying that they were invited by then-Governor Bush. The Taliban delegation, however, was invited to Houston by UNOCAL (search), a California energy company. Moore also doesn't mention that the visit was made with the permission of the Clinton administration, which twice met with Taliban members — in 1997 and 1998.


2. BUY! SELL! BUY! SELL! Consumer confidence jumps in June - Sentiment index rises more than expected
The Consumer Confidence Index increased nearly 9 points to 101.9, up from the revised 93.1 in May. The latest reading was much better than the 95 that analysts had expected.

3. VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN: AMIR TAHERI SAYS IRAQ NEEDS ELECTIONS NOW
Now, however, and for the first time, a major change has produced no refugees. Indeed, over a million Iraqi refugees have returned home during the past 12 months. The return movement has also affected over a million internally displaced persons, especially those driven out of the fenlands of the southeast. For the first time in almost half a century people are going back to Iraq rather than fleeing it.

Then — without warning — the planks gave way in a deluge of wood that smashed through the porches below, leaving a mangle of debris and young bodies on the ground. Thirteen people died, and at least 57 were injured.

6. IT TAKES A BILLIONAIRE TO TEACH US A THING OR TWO ABOUT POVERTY AND LATIN AMERICA. The nerve! Kerry speaks French and Bush speaks Spanish! Ugh.
Kerry spoke Saturday to a convention of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Washington, promising to be a US president "who knows where Latin America is."

7. BOSTON BETTER WATCH OUT FOR THE BRONX BOMBERS
The Yankees have certainly healed from their early trauma, amassing a .722 winning percentage since being swept in a three-game series by the Sox April 23-25. During the same stretch, Boston is barely over .500 (27-26), which explains the 5½-game gap between the two, and the startling realization the Red Sox are closer to third place than first.
