Janet Lea Hughes, 32, was arrested after two undercover Titusville police officers found her with a student in a van parked at First Presbyterian Church. The two were found lying on a blanket in the back of the van, in a position detectives said was clear they were about to engage in a sexual activity. When Hughes was taken back to the police station, detectives said she admitted to having sex with the same student in the past. Hughes was issued a $35,000 bond on one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor. On a second count of attempted sexual activity with a minor, Judge Judy Atkin ordered Hughes to community supervision and to have no contact with the boy. School officials placed a Jackson Middle School teacher on paid administrative leave.
The 32-year-old wife and mother taught business elective courses at Jackson Middle. Before her current gig, she taught at Palm Bay High School. Um, she also likes Jamiroquai.
Like I said, there is no time for anything besides work and sports during the school year.
Oh we don’t know, we think she has time for a few other things on the side. After all, it’s very important to take time out for things like, you know, going for a walk, hanging out at the beach, having sex in a van… that sort of thing.
Here’s more images from her MySpace:
1. Where were teachers like this when us old dudes were in school?
2. Why is a 16 year old kid still in middle school?
What we seem to have here is a 32 year old woman who is emotionally stunted. She says yuck! to Sushi and when asked if she thinks she’s attractive responds do u think i would say no in typical teenager fashion. If her MySpace profile didn’t have any photos of her and her family, I would think it was the profile of a 16 year old. Therefore, we would ask the court to grant this woman leniency, as she is probably not much more mature than the lucky boy she was diddling in the back of the van. Oh yeah, and she’s from Long Beach.
One of the kids who goes to Jackson Middle school (8th grade) has a MySpace profile and Janet Hughes left this comment:
Crazy? For sure. Lucky? Not so much.
Pure gold, ladies and gentlemen.
First Presbyterian Church, Titusville, FL. will u be lucky tonight?
