Maryann Verdi Jail Booking
Maryann Verdi Jail Booking 3/2010
Land O' Lakes, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Maryann Verdi, a 40-year-old former teacher at River Ridge High School in Pasco County has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with a student multiple times over a two year period.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office Verdi had sex with a 15-year-old student in December, 2009 while she was employed as a teacher at the same school. She is also charged with having sex with the same student in her car on Oct. 3rd when he was 17.
An investigation began after Verdi reportedly told her boyfriend that she had been involved in a sexual relationship with the student.
Investigators say Verdi's career in teaching has been plagued with problems over the last few years. She was fired from her teaching job at River Ridge last year after she was arrested for domestic battery against her husband. When deputies attempted to take her into custody, she resisted arrest and allegedly attacked the arresting officer.
This year district officials tried to give Verdi a fresh start at Sunlake High School, however, that endeavor was short lived. District officials filed termination papers after students complained that she used class time to talk about drugs, alcohol and her experiences in jail. She also repeatedly used profanity in the classroom and towards other teachers, according to district administrators.
Verdi was booked into the Pasco County Jail on charges of unlawful sex with a minor and lewd or lascivious battery. Bond in her case has been set at $20,000.
