Villagers’ daughter convicted of sex with teen on the lam after failing to report

Stephanie Seabury

A former Delaware middle school teacher who had sex with a student and moved in earlier this year with her parents in The Villages is officially on the lam.

Stephanie Lorraine Seabury, 28, has been classified as “absconded,” according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

An FDLE spokesman on Wednesday confirmed that Seabury has not completed the required steps to confirm her whereabouts.

Seabury in April had registered a permanent address at 362 Alteza Lane in the Village of La Belle North.

Seabury had been an English teacher at Fred Fifer III Middle School in Camden, Del. when she was arrested in 2014. She lived in an apartment complex in Dover, Del., where she had sex with a 13-year-old student. The boy told authorities that he had begun a sexual relationship with his teacher at her home. The sexual relationship included sexual intercourse. Seabury and the student met numerous times at a pre-determined location, then went to her apartment. They exchanged several explicit phone messages and photographs during the inappropriate relationship, according to news reports at the time.  

Stephanie Seabury was a middle school teacher in Delaware at the time of her arrest in 2014.

She was charged with one count of sexual abuse of a child by a person in a position of trust or authority, a felony in Delaware. 

Seabury was ultimately sentenced to 18 months probation, sparking some outage in the community. Many complained that if she would have been a male teacher, she would have received a harsher sentence.

Her parents, Stephen and Lorraine Seabury, purchased their Designer home in 2015 for $400,400.
