Tampa, FL (The Weekly Vice) -- Arrested once, arrested twice....... and as if the train hasn't been wrecked enough, Stephanie Ragusa tops even herself for yet a third arrest on child sex charges.
Stephanie Ragusa, a 28 year old math teacher from Martinez Middle School was originally arrested on 5 counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a minor from a sexual relationship she had with a 15 year old boy when she was a teacher at Davidson Middle School.
Ragusa was then arrested again in mid April and charged with more charges involving a second boy who was 15 (some sources say 14). Police say Ragusa had sexual contact with the second boy at least 20 times resulting in 2 counts of having unlawful sexual activity with a minor in addition to the previous 5 charges from her arrest in March.
Now Stephanie Ragusa has been arrested a 3rd time. While police have been slow to comment on the details of Ragusa's re-arrest, they have confirmed that the teacher violated the terms of her bond and proceeded to continue seeing one of the victims she previously had sex with.
Investigators say Ragusa was arrested again today on two new charges after she was caught in the act of having sex with one of the boys she previously had sex with. Police believe she also had sex with the same student back on April 5th.
“I can assure you that we are doing everything we can do right now to make sure that she not out at liberty to do this again,” said Lt. Fred Asteasuainzarra of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Ragusa was smiling, as she usually does for the cameras as police led her away in handcuffs. She was transported back to the Orient Road Jail (Hillsborough County Jail) and re-booked on the new charges.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Alright, the insanity is beginning to get a little old. Granted, as attractive as she may be, her nuttiness is becoming certifiable. Makes you a little curious how many fan letters she has coming in down at the county jail.
Florida just keeps on cranking out hot, nutty teachers faster than we can keep them posted. But as the saying goes. It's a nice place to visit, but we wouldn't wanna live there. Ragusa included.
