Lesson Lost on Teacher? 3rd Sex Rap

According to court documents cited by the Tampa Tribune, Ragusa continued to contact the student victim after her April 15 arrest and went to his house Monday to discuss the criminal case against her when the two went into a bedroom to have sex.

After the March arrest, school administrators in Hillsborough County put Ragusa on paid leave and letters were sent home to parents assuring the safety of their children and the quality of their educators.

It was revealed that Ragusa lied in her job application, failing to acknowledge a previous driving under the influence charge. She was also reprimanded by the school district for using profanity in front of students and sent to anger management classes and then transferred from one school to another for "physically restraining" a female student who threatened to walk out of her classroom.

"I can't imagine any scenario where we would invite her back," Linda Cobbe, Hillsborough County district spokesman, told ABC News. "The principal at her current school was already planning on not offering her a job again."

The Hillsborough County school district has earned a rather dubious reputation for female teachers engaging in sexual relationships with students, including the high-profile affair between Debra Lafave and a 14-year-old. Lafave is serving three years of house arrest and seven years' probation after entering a guilty plea.
