A South Florida teacher has been accused of a sexual relationship with a minor, authorities report.

Paige Leduc, 26, was detained after she was accused of carrying on a sexual relationship with a student of the Okeechobee County School District.

The elementary school teacher’s forbidden acts were allegedly with a student who goes to another school, according to the county.

According to Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Deputies, they were informed on Tuesday that Leduc and the child had a “romantic relationship” that began when they met during school hours and continued until the two became sexually involved.

In 2021, Leduc was honored as a “hometown hero” by a local Ford dealership in Okeechobee County.

Leduc has been charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

The Department of Children and Family Services, law enforcement, the school district, and the Department of Education Office of Professional Practices will independently conduct investigations.
