LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A former Fort Myers teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student will spend two and a half years in jail.
36-year-old Suzanne Owen was sentenced this week in Lee County. In addition to her prison sentence, she will spend ten years on probation.
In April 2018, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received a report that Owen, a teacher at Evangelical Christian School, had an inappropriate relationship with one of her students.
After further investigation it was found that Owen and the victim communicated through e-mails and text messages, and Owen admitted to engaging in sexual activity with the student.
