Teacher Arrested After Sex Video With Student Was Shown To The Football Team

Lakeland, FL – A substitute English teacher was caught having sex with an student in a Snapchat video that was allegedly shown to a group of football players.

Ayanna Davis, 20, was arrested Dec. 10 and admitted to police that she had unprotected sex with a student at least four times including twice at her house and twice at the student’s residence, according to WESH.

The New York Post reported that the victim’s age wasn’t disclosed but the police statement listed the student as 16-years-old or younger.

A student at Lakeland High School told police that there was a video of Davis having sex with the student and it was shown to several members of the football team, WESH reported.

Police have not seen the video but are trying to locate it, according to WFLA. Police started an investigation on Dec. 3, according to the New York Post.

“This is a clear violation of sexual battery laws. She was in a position of influence over the victim, and she took advantage of that for her own twisted pleasure,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said, according to WESH.

Davis was charged with sexual battery by a custodian and two additional counts of sexual battery, WESH reported. Her bond was listed at $60,000.

Davis was a substitute teacher at Lakeland High and was employed by Kelly Education Services and was not an employee of Polk County School District, according to police. She was hired by Kelly Education Services in August, according to WFLA.

“We expect substitute teachers to uphold the same high standards of conduct and professionalism as our full-time educators,” Polk County School District Superintendent Frederick Heid said, according to WESH. “The charges against this person are disgraceful and a complete violation of the trust that teachers build with their students. There is no room in our schools for this type of conduct.”
