The case of a former Turkey Creek Middle School teacher accused of having a sex with a 15-year-old student will not go to trial.

  • Former middle school teacher takes plea deal in student sex case
  • Victim was a student

Megan Connors, of Brandon, accepted a plea deal Monday. She received five years in Florida state prison, two years of community control (GPS monitoring), followed by 15 years’ probation.

Connors was arrested and charged with sexual battery, lewd and lascivious battery and lewd conduct in February 2015.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Connors established a relationship with the teenager, who was a student in her classroom.

Deputies say the relationship turned physical with Connors having sex with the boy at the school during school hours and once in his bedroom.

As part of the deal, Connors will also have to register as a sex offender.
