Teacher poses as fake friend's mother for sexual rendezvous with student, authorities say

JACKSONVILLE -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office arrested an Atlantic Coast High School teacher on Friday afternoon on charges she had a sexual relationship with a student.

First Coast News reports that officers met with the underage victim at the school Friday. The student told police 23-year-old Danielle Reed, an English teacher at the school, had both oral sex and sexual intercourse with the student on more than one occasion, according to an arrest report from the Sheriff's Office. The student told police the sexual relationship lasted from March 1 to June 15, 2012.

The victim, whose age wasn't given, told police that he and Reed planned to stay the night together but knew the student's mother would not allow it. The student, the report says, then created a fake friend named "Josh" for the student to pretend to stay the night with. The report said Reed came over to the student's home with a black lab named Dexter and met the student's mother, pretending to be "Josh's" mom.
