A teacher from Farnell Middle School forced a 14-year-old student to perform sex acts to her while she inappropriately touched the student.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office arrested Tammy Clinton, a teacher at Farnell Middle School, today charging her as shown above. Between the middle of January, 2010 and prior to today's date, Clinton forced a 14-year-old student to commit lewd or lascivious acts. While at the school, Clinton forced the victim to touch her breasts with his hand and she also fondled his buttocks. In addition, on two other occasions, one as recent as today, Clinton attempted to entice the victim to meet her off of the school grounds for the purpose of committing specific sexual acts on the victim.
The investigation began as a result of the victim confiding in an adult that brought it to the attention of law enforcement.
Clinton was arrested after being interviewed by detectives at the Criminal Investigations Division. She is currently being booked at the Orient Road Jail.
