A Florida middle school drama teacher was caught in the back seat of her car with a former student. 33-year-old Pamela Stigger is now facing two counts of sexual assault on a minor, according to People. The former student is now 15. Stigger is also being charged with one count of lewd and lascivious activity on a minor.
According to Stigger’s police report, deputies allegedly came across her car shortly after 2 a.m. on Thursday. She was found inside with the teen and the two had allegedly just finished having sex.
Stigger denied any sexual contact and instead told authorities that the teen tried “to seduce her” as deputies were approaching her car.
According to an NBC affiliate, the student was in Stigger’s eighth grade drama class.
“The defendant said she was only trying to mentor him while they were both occupying the back seat of her vehicle,” the arrest report stated according to PEOPLE.
Stigger is currently being held at $37,500 bail. She has been reassigned to a different school and will not be working with students going forward, according to a statement from Broward County Public Schools.
