The student reportedly told Lake Minneola High School Principal, Mrs. Shepard, that the relationship began as “benign texting” and progressed to a physical relationship where North and the student would perform oral sex on each other.

During an interview with North, the teacher reportedly admitted to the relationship with the student stating that the events normally occurred in a closet in the band room. North also told deputies that he had been in a previous relationship with another student but that it had been after that student turned 18.

North reportedly resigned from his position at the high school during the school board’s investigation.
