Florida Teacher Sentenced To 38 Months In Prison For Providing Alcohol And Having Sex With At Least One Student

Trying to be the cool teacher doesn’t mean that you have to provide alcohol and have sex with your students, but it appears that another teacher has fallen into the trap and will pay for her crimes by going to jail. On Tuesday, Kimberly Seevers was sentenced to 38 months in prison for sexual battery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

In January of 2015, the 45-year-old Jay High School teacher allegedly plied a teenage student with alcohol and then engaged in sex acts with the boy. The alleged offenses are thought to have occurred between September and November at Seevers’ home.

Seevers’ attorney Barry Beroset’s argument was that the victim had initiated the sexual contact.

To which Circuit Court Judge Russ Goodman retorted, “In my experience with sexual offenses, blaming the victim is only seldom appropriate.”

Despite being found guilty of this crime, things could get worse for the Pensacola, Florida teacher because she is accused of having sex with other juveniles.

“I have to look solely at the box of this case,” Goodman said. “And not at all of the other issues swirling around.”

During the court proceedings it was noted that Seevers had been involved in a relationship with an 18-year-old at the same time she had sex with the other victim, however that was determined to be inconsequential because it was sex between two consenting adults.

“If I was having sex with her daughter I’d get 20 years,” said Stan Bauman, the victim’s stepfather. “She’s a pedophile.”

As a result of the plea agreement and sentence Seevers will spend the rest of her life registered as a sexual offender. She will serve probation following the service of her sentence and was ordered to pay fines and fees.
