Elisha Joy Kingsley
ST. PETERSBURG – Pinellas County Sheriff’s detectives arrested a former teacher Monday, Aug. 18, for unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

According to the sheriff’s report, detectives began their investigation on July 22, after it was discovered that the suspect and a 16-year-old student were having an inappropriate relationship.

Detectives say that Elisha Joy Kingsley, 39, of St. Petersburg befriended the victim while she was a teacher at a private school in St. Petersburg. The suspect and the victim began texting each other via a phone application in mid-June.

The two then began to meet up at various locations throughout Pinellas County. On or around July 5, the victim and the suspect engaged in sexual activity at an undisclosed location.

Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit arrested Kingsley Aug. 18. She was released on $20,000 bond the same day.

Since Kingsley is a former teacher and had frequent contact with children, detectives say there could be other victims. Anyone with information on this investigation or other potential victims, is asked to contact Detective J. Stibbard with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS orwww.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.
