SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- A second girl has come forward in Seminole County saying a high school math teacher sexually assaulted her.

A second girl has come forward in Seminole County saying a high school math teacher sexually assaulted her.

On Thursday investigators said Scott Kimbrough, 39, of Winter Park, admitted to having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Friday deputies arrested Kimbrough again after another girl, also a student, came forward.

The girl told authorities that she and Kimbrough had sex about two years ago, just after she turned 15 years old, at the teacher's house.

According to Kimbrough's arrest report, he told that girl not to tell anyone and that he knew how old she was.

The report also said that the girl sent the teacher nude photos of herself.

Kimbrough was put on paid leave after his arrest Thursday, and has been recommended for termination.

Parent Esther Curry said what happened at her daughter's high school is disgraceful.

She said her daughter has known one of the girls since kindergarten.

"It's quite a shock, for myself, and to speak for every other parent who has children here," Curry said.

WFTV's legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said teachers usually receive a harsher sentence than their counterparts who commit similar crimes.

Kimbrough is being held at the Seminole County Jail without bond and will go before a judge Saturday.

After his arrest, teachers and students told investigators they witnessed some of the inappropriate contact between Kimbrough and the latest victim to come forward.

Authorities said they believe there could be more victims out there.

A judge said Kimbrough will be placed on GPS monitoring and will not be allowed near minors.

@Realchange…I think it's more like one set of rules for those that have money/power…And another set of rules for the rest of us.

I don't condone his behavior but we got gay people having sex with 15 to 17 year olds and not being arrested for it. Elmo actor, they gay congressman etc... So much for justice for all.

Maybe he should ask why last year a gay congressman got away with having sex with a 17 year old boy. No charges filed because the sex was consenual. The Congressman was allowed to resign wihtout it making much news and avoided any jail time whatsoever. Funny that one set laws for straights and another for gays.
