JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Nassau County High School teacher was arrested Thursday, accused of having an ongoing sexual relationship with a female student who is now 17 years old.
Stephen Brian Turner, 43, was charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor, child abuse, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, providing alcohol to a person under 21 and distributing or showing obscene material to a minor.
The victim told detectives she and Turner began having a sexual relationship in 2008 and had bought her a cell phone, jewelry and was in the process of buying her a ring.
When detectives obtained and executed search and arrest warrants on Wednesday, they found that Turner had cleaned and abandoned his Fernandina Beach home. Investigators found Turner at his parents’ house in Jacksonville on Thursday and arrested him with the assistance of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

What an ass to throw away his career for sex with a minor. Guess his brains were somewhere other than his head.

Well from what I witnesses while playing music with "Riptide" his Band, that young girl would be present at nearly every show. so every one knew about this "affair", but when he decided to break it off she went crying to her parents.....and that's when the trouble started. I wonder how long he'll be incarcerated and whether he will change his sexual Orientation while in there with the Bad Boys of Buggery?

I was thinking that it seemed to me like she was not an innocent victim but possibly a manipulator to her own advantage.
some people might call that a Prostitute.


snicklefritz it started when she was 12 who knows what he promised her over the years and now she is to old, time for a new younger one. She probably grew up thinking they were going to get married.

oh crap I didn't do the math.

That means everyone that knew is culpable.
