A Pinellas County teacher is accused of sending nude pictures of herself to a 17-year-old boy.
Lesley R. Brown, 45, was jailed Tuesday on two felony charges of transmission of material harmful to minors.
Brown, a fourth grade teacher at Fuguitt Elementary School, did not meet the teenager as part of her work, according to the Largo Police Department.
Officers learned of the images she’s accused of sending after they were called Monday to the Highland Recreation Center, where someone reported Brown entering a unisex restroom with the teenager, police said.
They stayed in the restroom for 10 minutes before officers arrived, police said. According to a statement from the agency, she told officers she goes to the center to work out three times a week and the teenager is her workout partner and spotter.
They both denied doing anything in the restroom, police said, and told officers they locked the door because they heard voices and didn’t want people at the center to think anything was going on.
Brown was given a trespassing warning.
That night, officers found the nude pictures of Brown, along with lewd text messages, from the teenager’s cellphone, police said.
