Pensacola, Florida (WKRG) — A judge in northwestern Florida has sentenced a former employee of the Escambia County School District to imprisonment for sexually assaulting a student hundreds of times over a year.
Susan Weddle, 42, will serve in a state prison for six and a half years, followed by five years of probation. After she was released, she was ordered to stay out of contact with the victim and her family and was not allowed to work or volunteer anywhere with her child. She is also designated as a sex offender.
Weddle sexually assaulted a 15-year-old Tate High School student hundreds of times off campus.
The 2019 arrest report states that Weddle had a sexual relationship with the boy. She initially resisted admitting that it was wrong and told her agent that she had succumbed after he stuck. She gave him gifts such as iPhones, necklaces and bracelets. He said they were just gifts, not payments.
The student was a close friend of Weddle’s teenage son, and it all started after a party at her home.
According to the document, Weddle was a technical specialist in the school district when she was arrested.
