Female teachers targeting student boys
‘Takedown with Chris Hansen’ host breaks down the disturbing trend of female school teachers targeting young male students on ‘Jesse Watters Primetime.’
Allegations against a Florida art teacher were confirmed by more than two dozen videos depicting sex acts between her and her former eighth-grade student that were filmed in a car, a hotel and other locations across three counties, according to a criminal complaint.
Marie-Jo Gordo, 29, faces three counts of sexually exploiting a minor and federal child pornography charges, according to court documents filed on Oct. 25 and obtained by Fox News Digital.
Gordo entered a plea of not guilty on Jan. 8 via a signed waiver and is scheduled to appear in an Orlando court on Jan. 18. Phillip Arroyo, Gordo’s attorney, could not be reached at press time to comment on the charges.
She has been free on bond since her October arrest, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told Fox News Digital.

Approximately 28 videos of Gordo and the boy “engaged in sexual activity” were found on their phones after the boy’s mother contacted the Orange County Sheriff’s Office about the alleged abuse. The Orange County Digital Forensics Unit determined the location where the videos were taken using metadata.
Before resigning in June, Gordo was employed at an Orange County school that was not named in court documents. Since then, she had been hired as an art teacher at another school in the county, also unnamed, where she taught students ranging from kindergarten to eighth grade.
