Two teenage students in a high school in Florida were so angry when they found out their science teacher was having sex with both of them so they took revenge by reporting the affiar to the man’s wife.
Both teens, 16 and 17, are now former studentsat Fletcher High School in Neptune Beach, where they told police they had sex with Corey French, 30, both at the school and in his home, according to an administrative report by the Duval County School Board obtained by WJXT.
They said it wasn’t until they found out that French had a sexual relationship with both of them that they confronted his wife and showed her pictures as evidence of the trysts, according to the report.
French was arrested on two counts of unlawful sexual activity in September. Police said both girls told investigators they had consensual sex with French while he taught at the school between 2015 and 2017.
The former students told police that French confessed his love to them, and even planned a getaway to Colorado or Alaska with one of the teens. One of the teens even abandoned her plans to go to college in hopes that French would leave his wife to be with her, according to the report.
But both girls are now refusing to press charges, complicating matters for investigators.
Attorney Gene Nichols, who is not affiliated with the case, told WJXT:
The number one reason we will see is that they don’t want to bring any more attention to themselves or to their families. They’re victims of crimes, and it’s a difficult being a victim of a crime.
French, a four-year district employee, has pleaded not guilty and remains free after posting bond. He’s expected to return to court on Nov. 14, WJXT reported.
French’s wife, Alexandra French, who worked as a kindergarten teacher at Venetia Elementary School in Jacksonville, was also arrested in late September on a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest without violence. The district reviewing her matter and will make a discipline recommendation at the appropriate time.
