A 20-year old substitute English teacher at Lakeland High School was arrested by detectives from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit for sexually battering a student (16-years or younger), Polk Sheriff’s Office said.

Ayanna Davis of Lakeland admitted to detectives that she had unprotected sex with the student on four occasions, twice at his house, and twice at her house. Deputies say her admission aligned with what the victim told detectives.

“This is a clear violation of sexual battery laws,” Sheriff Grady Judd said. “She was in a position of influence over the victim, and she took advantage of that for her own twisted pleasure.”
