Paedo teacher, 30, lured 16-year-old student into her car for beachfront romps

A female teacher seduced a 16-year-old student into a string of seaside romps inside her car.

Sex offender Megan Parris, 30, has been jailed after launching a relationship with a boy at New Smyrna Beach high school in Florida.

Parris told the court how she still "can't understand" why she 'crossed the line' in sleeping with a student in 2019 when he was just 16.

Local news channel WESH reports the now ex teacher grovelled as she was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

She told the judge: “I'm sorry to the victim and his family, I'm sorry to my family, I'm sorry to our town."

She went on to say she does not know why she lured him into having sex in her car at a beachfront park.

The former teacher continued in court saying: “I take full responsibility for it, how mentoring somebody got from here to crossing that line, I'm not quite sure.

"I really to this day can't understand but I'm the adult and that line should have stopped with me. I should have stopped it.”

The news station says Parris told judge Raul Zambrano she had undiagnosed bipolar disorder at the time. She said she has since gotten treatment for it, though it is ongoing.

The married mum-of-two saw several friends and relatives speak on her behalf in court asking for a lenient sentence.

WESH said they asked to send Parris home to her family and young children.

The victim was not at the sentencing. According to the judge, the teen dropped out of school after Parris's arrest and has since moved out of the area. However, according to the prosecutor, the victim asked for a lesser sentence than the five and a half to 15 years the defendant could have received.

The judge sentenced Parris to two and a half years in prison. She will also have to be registered as a sex offender and serve 10 years on sex offender probation.
