An Escambia County School District special education teacher allegedly had a sexual relationship with one of her son’s teenage friends for more than a year.
Thomas said Weddle had worked at the center as a learning resource specialist — essentially a teacher who helps train other teachers — for the past 11 months.
In both roles, Weddle had worked with special education students and special education teachers.
The teenager told Escambia County Sheriff’s Office investigators that he was 15 and Weddle was 39 at the outset of their sexual relationship.
During the more than year-long relationship, Weddle allegedly gave the teenager an iPhone, necklace and a bracelet as gifts.
