Substitute teacher, 28, at private prep school 'plied student, 16, with alcohol and had sex with him after exchanging lewd messages over Snapchat'
A substitute teacher and administrator at a private Florida school was arrested on Friday after her co-workers told authorities that she had sex with one of her students.
Alicia Bromfield has been charged with unlawful sex with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after an official at The Crenshaw School in Gotha notified welfare workers at the Department of Children and Families about the alleged relationship, who in turn contacted the Orlando police.
WFTV reports that the 28-year-old allegedly picked up the student, 16, from his home in Kissimmee and then drove him to her Orlando apartment where she drank vodka with him before the two had sex.
Prior to that Bromfield, who divorced her husband of just over two years in June, had allegedly exchanged lewd photos with the boy on Snapchat.
The incident between Bromfield and the student occurred last month, and soon after she told some of her fellow workers what happened between the two.
Those individuals then told the attorney for the school, who contact the DCF hotline.
'There was alcohol involved. She provided the alcohol, he consumed it. Both parties were probably under the influence,' said Orlando police Sergeant Tami Edwards.
Bromfield, who is related to the student account manager at The Crenshaw School, began working at the prep school in August.
She was a substitute teacher for a brief while, and twice had the young boy she is accused of sleeping with in her class.
Bromfield then moved into a more administrative role at the school and began working in the front office.
The school has yet to comment on Bromfield's arrest.
After her arrest on Friday, Bromfield was released from the Orange County Jail when she posted $5,100 bail.
