PINELLAS COUNTY, FL -- A former teacher accused of having sex with a student sent a letter of support to the jailed son of Hulk Hogan. Authorities say Stephanie Ragusa, who is also in jail, sent the letter June 2nd to 17-year-old Nick Bollea. The letter was intercepted by Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies after they recognized Ragusa's name. Bollea, who is serving an eight-month sentence on a charge of reckless driving with serious bodily injury, was later given a copy of the letter.
29-year old Ragusa is facing charges of lewd or lascivious battery and unlawful sexual activity with a minor. A Sheriff's spokesperson says the letter does not appear to break any rules.
