Apopka Teacher Texts Student Inappropriately
An Apopka Memorial Middle School teacher is accused of exchanging 129,000 text messages with a female student, said police.
The relationship began while the girl was in middle school and continued as she moved on to high school. The teenager involved said she never had a romantic relationship with the physical education teacher though.
The girl told police she made up a lot of the things she told her teacher as they exchanged those text messages.
However, detectives don’t believe the teacher made up the things she said in her responses to the teen.
Some of the content the texts was too graphic to report.
Alyson London, the physical education teacher, was arrested by police after a month-long investigation on 22 charges.
During the investigation detectives found 129,000 deleted text messages between London and the 14-year-old former student.
WESH news obtained the offense report, according to it before the girl moved on to high school a co-worker saw london rubbing the teen’s shoulders in an office where students weren’t allowed. A co-worker also witnessed the two “constantly touch each other’s legs, back, hair, etc.”
That co-worker also told detectives that London, the teen and another girl would meet at parks around the town each week.
London was released from jail on a nearly $33,000 bail. The texts detailed in a 19-page report were just a few of the tens of thousands she sent.
In one of the text message chains, police say London explained orgasms and how to touch herself. In another she explained, to who she thought was another person, how to have sex with the girl while she was sleeping.
In August London sent a text saying she was in love with the girl.
“8th grade year I fell in love,” “I could have walked away many times and didn’t,” “Instead, my love for you grew.”
The girl said she told London stories about being physically abused, raped and drugged because she wanted someone to believe she had an “interesting life even though she did not.” She also told London she thought of her as a mentor not romantically.
