Midweek Sport - - TELEVISION X -

A FE­MALE dance teacher has been ac­cused of hav­ing sex with a 15-year-old girl stu­dent after the teen’s step­fa­ther walked in on the two of them in bed to­gether.

He was check­ing up on his step­daugh­ter, who was meant to be off school ill, when he found Lau­ren Debenedetta, 38, al­legedly bed­ding the girl.

The step­dad then told cops in North Port, Florida, of the un­der-age af­fair, it has been re­ported.

Now Debenedetta, who worked at Haven Dance Stu­dio, has been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of mo­lest­ing the young girl.

Char­lotte County Sher­iff’s Of­fice said the teacher is fac­ing two counts of lewd and las­civ­i­ous bat­tery after be­ing ac­cused of per­form­ing sex­ual acts on the girl.

Ac­cord­ing to cops, Debenedetta told the girl’s step­dad to shut the door when he found them in bed to­gether.

Ini­tially, the teenager de­nied the af­fair – but later ad­mit­ted en­gag­ing AR­RESTED: Debenedetta in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with Debenedetta dur­ing in­ter­views.

The step­fa­ther then called the girl’s mother to tell her about the al­leged in­ci­dent.

Court doc­u­ments show Debenedetta had con­tacted the stu­dent on the day she was home sick and asked if she could come over.

The pair al­legedly kissed and en­gaged in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity to­gether, the doc­u­ments re­vealed.

Haven Dance Stu­dio has been shut fol­low­ing Debenedetta’s ar­rest.
