Lennard High School ‘College Success Coach’ Arrested for Sex With 16-Year-Old Student

RUSKIN, Fla. – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Lennard High School employee who was found to be engaging in sexual activity with a student over the course of several months.

Between November 12, 2020, through March 19, 2021, a college success coach , had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old female student. The suspect was not the student’s teacher, but they met each other at school. HCSO was alerted of the relationship when another student, a friend of the victim, reported the relationship to an adult.

On Thursday night, March 25, Witter was arrested on six charges of Unlawful Sexual Activities with a Minor.

“Anthony Witter knew that his actions were wrong, and as the adult, he should never have allowed this relationship to develop with a minor,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “No parent should have to worry about their child being preyed upon when they send them to school. We are thankful that another student bravely came forward to report this inappropriate and unacceptable behavior.”

At this time, detectives believe this is an isolated incident and do not believe there are other victims.
