NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. ) - A former Florida teacher is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.Stephanie Peterson, 26, was arrested by deputies with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office on charges of lewd or lascivious battery and transmission of harmful materials to a minor.
The relationship is believed to have started in November. A detective responded to the victim’s family’s home Tuesday after the student disclosed the relationship to his parents. The student, an 8th grader, told detectives Peterson would send him nude photos. He said she started coming to his home at night, picking him up around 11 p.m. on several occasions and bringing him back around 1 or 2 a.m. The victim also claimed that Peterson bought him marijuana. He also claimed that she took his virginity, saying they always used protection.

The victim’s grades suffered during the abuse and Peterson told the teen that he couldn’t tell anyone or they would get in trouble, according to the sheriff’s statement. When Peterson was arrested, she was held on a $25,000 bond.
Peterson married firefighter Brandon Ferri in New Smyrna Beach on December 5, 2015. A News-Journal article on Peterson’s February 2018 arrest says that she is being represented in her divorce from Ferri by her father, attorney Philip Peterson. The divorce application was filed on February 12.
According to Brandon Ferri’s now-deleted Facebook page, he is a firefighter and EMT with the Deland Fire Department. In addition, Ferri also runs fishing expeditions in New Smyrna Beach. That page says that Ferri has lived in the area his whole life and “has operated his own boat on Mosquito Lagoon since the age of 15.” Ferri has not commented on his estranged wife’s arrest.
This is what all the digging and hard work is for: The Money Shot. You wait day in, and day out for the perfect Female Teacher Sex scandal that has it all. It's almost as painful as blue balls for any FTSS detective. But then, Stephanie Peterson flops onto your lap; and on our 'victim's' as well. They always come out of nowhere and usually after a slump.
It's like fishing (as I am sure our gurl knows); you wait all day long, sometimes days, maybe even weeks or months for that rare catch. Then, on a day you least suspect it (usually on your last beer in the canoe) you get a tug on your line.
Stephanie tugged us all today. She got this FTSS detective; hook, line and sinker.
It is only the end of February and we already have history in the making. Stephanie Peterson is probably the hottest scandal this year (easily) and maybe will go down as one of the hottest .of all time; Hall of Fame worthy. Like with grading and judging in the Olympic Games, you normally don't give out full marks to the first few competitors to save some currency; just in case someone blows one of your previous 'greats' out of the water later on. However, I am going to have to blow my grade- load all over Stephanie, because it would be cruel not too; for me, for her and for our victim.
A victim, by the way, who will be telling this tale of tuna until the day he dies; he will get free drinks at every harbor bar he goes to, high-fives until his hand bleeds. However, the tragedy for our victim, though, is that masturbation for him will be forever ruined. We call that: Chasing the Dragon.
The Report Card
Methodology: We have all the criteria for determining a professional: romping with a super-minor (14-fucking-years old), supplying cannabis(drugs), covert pick-ups/meet ups, sending nudies and illicit sexual material. All of this during a marriage breakdown/on-going divorce.
Full-blown off-the-rails, gong-show. Where Stephanie blew it though,(pun always intended) in my professional opinion, was not abiding by the traditional rule: Having your date home by midnight! You gotta give accolades to the clueless Ward and Cleaver parents. Your son is getting picked up by a mysterious female figure in the shadows from 11pm-2 or 3 am. Gee, I wonder what he is up too?
Integrity: Where do we begin, Stephanie. You divorced a FIRE-FIGHTER (aka- Chad). Had a nervous breakdown and filled the void with a fresh out-of-the-pond, horny 14-year old pubescent male student; who's first masturbation experience was probably with you: The best masturbatory aid and device. A bold move for sure. That'll show your ex-husband.
Presentation/looks: No wonder why they had to have sex multiple times; if you're a 14-year old dude, you can't just hit that once. Hell, if you're any dude...imagine losing your virginity with that smoke-show. You're done life, son. You win. You can go ahead and try heroin (they say weed is a gateway drug) but you will never get anything akin to the feeling of busting a virgin nut into every male student's fantasy and life goal. Remember when Rocky beat Drago in IV? Yeah, try that feeling x10000. And we are talking about the symbolic fall of communism here!
Must be torture for our victim right now because Stephanie most likely will have to arrange for his parents to drop him off for 2 hours at the jail for the ensuing conjugal. Let's hope our victim can pass his drivers test, soon.
Note: I am going to save the (+) just....just in case we have a hotter FTSS later this year. I highly doubt it but we have to keep our heads on straight here, and not get ahead of ourselves right now. It's an emotional time I am sure, for everyone.
