A Broward charter school teacher lost her job after it was revealed she had an inappropriate relationship with her teen student.
A married Broward charter school teacher was fired after her husband and school officials discovered she was having a sexual relationship with her teen student.
Marcia Rolle worked as an English teacher at the Life Skills Center in Oakland Park, but it was the steamy words in the hundreds of text messages that she sent 19-year-old student Christopher Peterson that got the teacher the pink slip.
But it was the turned-on teach's husband who initially got school officials to look into Rolle's relationship with Peterson after he claims he caught the two not exactly cracking the books in the couple's bedroom in May, according to the South Florida Times.
Wilson Rolle Jr. filed complaints with the police, the charter school and the Broward school district after he discovered the teacher's tryst in May.
Rolle Jr. even said he had secretly planted an recording device that caught his wife and the student having sex.
Because Peterson was of legal age, the police dropped their investigation. The school district decided to conduct its own investigation, since state regulations prohibit teachers from having sexual relationships with students, regardless of their age.
In May, Marcia Rolle sent the school district a letter, denying her husband's allegations.
"[I] have never and would never be involved in a relationship with a student," the letter read.
Rolle, 25, was suspended without pay in August. She was fired on Sept. 13 after she declined to meet with the school board to follow up on their investigation.
Rolle's husband filed for divorce after he obtained his wife's phone records, which revealed the hundreds of texts between the two.
"This is it. I'm through," he said, adding that he plans to subpoena the actual words of the texts. "Those messages are going to show exactly what has been going on."
Marcia Rolle and Peterson couldn't be reached for comment.
