Susan Weddle, age 40 and a former special education teacher, was arrested on Monday after having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy for more than a year.
Weddle and the teen allegedly began their relationship in Weddleâ€™s Florida home after her sonâ€™s football game. The teen was a good friend of her sonâ€™s and was visiting to show support.
Weddle supplied alcohol to the boy.
According to the arrest report, once they were drunk, the 15 year-old boy asked Weddle to have sex with him.
The 40 year-old woman agreed to have sex with the boy.
Their first encounter turned into â€œseveral hundredâ€ encounters over the course of an illegal sexual relationship that would last more than a year.

Reportedly, the two then had sex in Weddleâ€™s home, the teenâ€™s home, Weddleâ€™s car and at the beach. Also included in the report was the boy was a virgin prior to his time with Weddle and he became emotionally invested in the what he perceived as a relationship.

The report read:
â€œWeddle was his first and only sexual partner, and he believed himself to be in love with her.â€
Though they tried to keep the illegal sexual relationship between them, there were multiple witnesses who saw them acting inappropriately together, some of whom eventually reported the information, so proper actions could be taken.
One witness came across revealing text messages between the boy and Weddle. They then shared the information with the high school counselor, who forwarded their concerns to the Department of Children and Families.
Another witness, who had been on Weddleâ€™s property after being hired to power-wash her house, went straight to the Escambia County Sheriffâ€™s Office to report he had seen the two kissing.
