TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A former Tampa teacher convicted of having sex with a student wants the Florida Supreme Court to take her off probation.
A three-judge panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal also asked the high court to review its decision as a question of great public importance. The panel acknowledged the state had no right under Florida law to appeal the trial judge's decision but cited common law to reverse it.
LaFave pleaded guilty in 2005 to having sex with a 14-year old boy.
