Teacher accused of rewarding girls candy for sex acts in court

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Former Rosarian Academy teacher Stephen Budd, who is accused of sexual activity with two young girls, made court appearance Friday morning.

According to the West Palm Beach Police chief, in 2006, Budd allegedly had sexual encounters with two 4th graders. Budd reportedly would use "Budd Bucks" to reward the girls with candy in return for sexual acts.

One alleged victim told police Budd recently tried to get in touch with her through Facebook. That's when she told her parents, who contacted police.

After leaving Rosarian Academy in 2007, Budd took a job at South Tech Academy charter school in Boynton Beach. Administrators there quickly placed Budd on leave pending the outcome of his case.

Police are concerned there could be other victims.

In court today a judge reset Budd's hearing until September.
