A South Carolina teacher allegedly bragged to colleagues that she “couldn’t control” herself when she had sex with two students at a booze-fueled party hosted with another coworker, police said.
New details have emerged after Brittney Whetzel, 28, and Akina Andrews, 23, were arrested in April for allegedly throwing students a spring break party in Lady’s Island, news station WGHP reported.
Whetzel, a Battery Creek High School teacher, reportedly searched online before the party, “Can teachers get in trouble for sleeping with former students?”
She told friends that she couldn’t wait until graduation so she could have one of the teen’s “beautiful babies,” according to the Island Packet newspaper.
But before the student could get his diploma, Whetzel invited him and three other teens April 9 to her home for drinking games, according to officials.
Andrews, who also taught at Battery Creek High School, was also at the party.
The teachers are accused of supplying beer, wine and tequila to the teens.
Whetzel allegedly had sex with two of the students while at the party. Though both were the age of consent, it’s illegal for teachers to have sexual relations with students under South Carolina law.
In a group text with colleagues, Whetzel allegedly boasted a few hours later about the sexual encounter.
A third coworker in the group chat reported the incident to police and the two partying teachers were arrested, according to officials.
Whetzel was charged April 16 with sexual battery and transfer of beer or wine for an underage person’s consumption.
Andrews turned herself in to authorities the same day and was charged with providing alcohol to minors.
