The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrested 49 year old music teacher Carol Flannigan on charges that she had a 19 month long sexual relationship with an 11 year old boy. The boy is now 13 and his stepmother alerted police.
Police say they had the boy call the teacher and they overheard her telling the boy to lie about the relationship. Flannigan is being charged with two counts of capital sexual battery against a child under 12 years of age and four other counts.
The teacher had been investigated by the Department of Children and Families in 2002 after her husband revealed to a counselor that she had expressed feelings of a sexual nature after a kiss with a 12 y.o. boy. The agency found she only "tap kissed."
