Teacher accused of having sex with student

Florida police say a 35-year-old high school teacher was unaware they were listening in when she confirmed that she had a sexual relationship with a student.

Deputies in St. Lucie County took 35-year-old Tiffany Geliga into custody on two counts of sexual assault and booked her into the county jail.

The mother of a student contacted a school resource officer after she found several text messages between Geliga and her son.

Cops listened in on a call between the student in question and Geliga and she admitted to the sex acts. The son then told school administrators that he believed another student was having a sexual relationship with the teacher.

In late April 2017 or early May 2017, the teenager alleges he met Geliga off campus and had sex in Geliga's auto on two separate occasions.

Geliga had been working at the school since August 2014.

After the unidentified teen made the allegations, police conducted a controlled call between the teacher and teenager to confirm that the pair had sexual relations. Allegations of this sort are a serious breach of ethics.

"We have no evidence to suggest that anything illegal happened on school grounds", said Port St. Lucie Det.
