Students and parents are stunned by the details in the case of a Port Saint Lucie teacher accused of having sex with a 15 year old student.
Gary Burnette, the band director at St Lucie West Centennial High, has been fired

According to an arrest affidavit, Burnette admitted to having sex with the student once in the back of his truck last month. Police say it happened as he was driving the girl home after a school band event. Investigators say the victim had been a family friend for the past 4 or 5 years and had looked at him as a mentor. Burnette was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior and sexual battery on a minor. He was given a $600,000 bond. If he does bond out, he’ll be ordered to wear an ankle bracelet and have pre-trial supervision.

In the wake of  this arrest news partner CBS12 has uncovered St. Lucie County Public School District teachers have an unusually high rate of arrests for inappropriate relationships with students.
A total of 6 St Lucie County teachers have been arrested for sexual encounters with students in just the past two years.
