New Port Richey, Florida -- A former Pasco County school teacher was arrested, charged with having sex with a 15-year-old boy in December 2009.

40-year-old Maryann Verdi is charged with lewd or lascivious battery and unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

Investigators say Verdi recently had sex with the same teen again, who is now 17.

Verdi resigned from her job last month after she was suspended without pay due to inappropriate professional conduct.  There were no allegations of sexual misconduct prior to her resignation.

Verdi was also suspended without pay for over a year after she was arrested for battery on a law enforcement officer in April 2009.

During her 20 year teaching career, Verdi taught at Gulf, River Ridge, and Sun Lake high schools.
