A middle school teacher in South Florida was arrested Thursday after allegedly having sex with a student, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Pamela Stigger, 33, was caught by deputies in a car with a 15-year-old boy around 2 a.m. in Tamarac, shortly after engaging in sexual acts with him, police said.
Stigger works as an eighth-grade teacher Forest Glen Middle School and was the victim’s teacher in the past, the arrest report said.
