Orange City, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Stephanie Cobb, a 26-year-old former teacher at University High School in Volusia County was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly had an ongoing sexual relationship with a student.
According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, an investigation began last December after authorities received an anonymous cell phone call from a woman who told deputies that a teenager she knew was acting suicidal.
Investigators would later learn that the caller was Cobb, who didn't want to identify herself because police were already looking into allegations that she was having a relationship with a student.
Cobb resigned her position at the school and tried to break off the relationship shortly after the investigation began. That's when detectives say the former teacher began receiving alarming text messages from the student that sounded like he might harm himself.
911 operators asked the caller what the teenage student said that indicated that he might be suicidal.
Cobb quoted the student by saying "He wants to end everything. He has no purpose in living."
Deputies made contact with the student at University High School and discovered that the teen was upset, but not suicidal.
The student told detectives that he and Cobb had been involved in a sexual relationship that began in August and continued into September. Phone records indicated that Cobb and the student had exchanged more than 12,000 text messages over the course of the relationship. The text messages were stored in a file on the student's phone marked "My Precious Angel."
The student told detectives that he and Cobb had sex inside her car at Deltona park and that the two of them were in love.
Cobb was booked into the Volusia County Jail and charged with second-degree felony unlawful sex with a minor. She was released after posting $25,000 bond.
