RIVERVIEW, Fla. – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a teacher for initiating an inappropriate relationship with a student.

Paige Morley, 22, was a teacher at Winthrop College Preparatory Academy, in Riverview, when she entered into a romantic relationship with a male student.

Morley coordinated to meet with the victim after school hours through various school-sanctioned events beginning in February of 2023. These events were at the school following normal school hours.

During the events, the victim and defendant would engage in sexual acts, according to deputies.

“It is unfathomable, how a trusted member of our community could abuse the power and position they were given,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “This woman was entrusted to educate students and be a positive influence, instead she is a disgrace. As a father, I empathize with parents who are learning of this, and I appreciate the school’s cooperation during this investigation.”

Morley is facing multiple charges including:

  • Lewd or Lascivious Battery (Engage) (Authority Figure Over Student)
  • Lewd or Lascivious Molestation (Defendant Over 18; Victim 12 – 15) (Authority Figure Over Student)
  • Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition (Defendant Over 18) (Authority Figure Over Student)
  • Authority Figure Soliciting or Engaging in a Romantic Relationship With a Student
  • Sexual Battery (Familial or Custodial Authority) (Authority Figure Over Student)
