Boca sex-on-campus investigation began with Apple Watch message

Two Olympic Heights High School teachers accused of having sexual encounters with each other on campus were outed by his Apple Watch and angry wife, according to a school district investigation of the matter.

Both lost their jobs during the course of the investigation.

William Barham, 45, was fired – a process that was sped by the fact he’d been hired just a year ago to work in the school’s Junior ROTC program. Vocational teacher Laura Field, 28, quit, district officials report.

The principal of the Boca Raton school alerted parents of the matter March 2, after the two were no longer employed.

Investigators were tipped off on Feb. 24., according to reports released this week.

It appears Barham’s wife spotted a text message to him on his Apple watch. The message said, “This was a stupid flying(sic) we should have never done this. I’m going to lose my job for having sex with you at school. And for leaving school to have set together. Everyone knows.”

Barham’s wife took a picture of the message and contacted not only school officials, but the boyfriend of the teacher she suspected sent it.

That boyfriend gave investigators photos of the messages he took off Field’s phone from a contact she labeled “captainamerica” that further supported the accusations, according to the report.
