A middle school employee in the Ocala area was arrested on Wednesday after accusations that she had sexual contact with a 14-year-old student, deputies said.
A deputy responded to a suspicious vehicle at a church parking lot on July 6 and found Katie Carsey, 36, half naked in the car, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Carsey told the deputy that she was there to “meet a male friend,” WKMG reports.
Detectives said a few months later, Carsey mentioned to someone that she almost got caught having sex with her student during the incident with the deputy.
Carsey admitted to investigators on Wednesday that she had sexual contact with her student in the back seat of her car, deputies said to WKMG. The victim, who is now 15, told detectives that he jumped out of Carsey’s car and fled home when he saw the deputy’s car.
Police took Carsey to the Marion County Jail on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim 12 years or older and lewd or lascivious molestation, according to jail records.
She is being held on a $10,000 bond.
