A South Florida high school teacher was arrested after she used Facebook to solicit sex from at least four students aged 15 to 17, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Friday.
Stevie Glasspool, 31, from Boca Raton, was arrested on Thursday by the Palm Beach Sheriff's office on a Broward warrant. She was in jail on $25,000 bond and was charged with soliciting a child for unlawful sexual conduct using computer services or devices. It wasn't immediately known if she had an attorney.
Glasspool was a teacher at Mavericks Charter High School in Pompano Beach but was fired in May, authorities said. She then worked at Hollywood Academy of Arts & Sciences for the first four days of the school year, the sheriff's office said.
The four students attended Mavericks Charter High School. The sheriff's office said she invited the students for a sleepover at her home in Boca Raton, and as an incentive, she offered them marijuana.
The sheriff's office said one message read: “I don’t want you to fall in love with me, but I also don’t want you to hit it and quit it either.”
Authorities said the messages were sent in April and May, while she worked at Mavericks.
Chris O'Neill was a junior at Mavericks when he says his English teacher, Glasspool, took their Facebook friendship to the next level. Sometimes, she would send him dozens of messages until he responded, he said.
"She didn't necessarily go all out the first day, but after 30 minutes of me talking to her that night, she got more blatant with me," said O'Neill, who is now a senior.
Some of the messages ended up on his Facebook wall for all to see. That's when he says that Glasspool deleted her Facebook account, but not before he saved a message allegedly from her.
"I'm here all night, but this sounds like a sleep over all night because if you give it like you say I may want more. I think I love this not being your teacher anymore," the message said.
Shortly thereafter he told another teacher and Glasspool was fired, he said.
"This lady is just a whack job. Whatever happens to her, happens to her and I have no remorse for anything," he said.
She was put on leave without pay. Meanwhile, authorities expect more charges to be filed and more victims to come forward. They are asking anyone with information to contact them at 954-321-4689 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
