A 16-YEAR-OLD boy in America has claimed his teacher sent him nude photos on Snapchat and had sex with him in a car behind a hotel.
Lindsay M. Halstead, 29, was arrested in upstate New York on Tuesday on charges of sexual misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child, after the teen
Halstead was a teacher at the Waterloo Central School District for four years, where she met the teenager and the subject of the alleged sexual encounter in November 2018.
She had been the boy’s PE teacher throughout the 2017-2018 school year.
NUDE PHOTOS WITHIN WEEKS
During court proceedings, the teen told police that Halstead reached out to him in September via Snapchat and started sending him nude photos within weeks.
After sending the racy snapshots, Halstead wondered if the teen planned to return the favor, asking if he was “going to send her something,” WROC reports.
Halstead later reportedly picked the teen up from a library in Waterloo and had sex in the backseat of her SUV while parked behind a Hampton Inn in Seneca Falls.
In court, the teen said that after the encouter: “I was pretty quiet and I just said a few words.”
Halstead, meanwhile, was upbeat, the teen told police.
Halstead seemingly enjoyed the alleged encounter, later contacting the teen on Snapchat and Instagram, prompting him to block her, court records show.
The teen continued: “At this point, I was like, this is weird, why is she still texting me.”
Halstead began teaching at Waterloo Central School District in September 2014 and resigned four school years later, in February 2018.
The alleged encounter happened after Halstead had left the school and was working at Midlakes School District as a long-term substitute.
The teen only told investigators about the relationship in May of this year – three months after it happened.
An investigation is ongoing and Halstead may face additional charges.
According to reports, she was fired by Midlakes School District for reasons that are unknown.
A state police spokesman told The Post-Standard that investigators circulated Halstead’s booking photo in case additional victims may recognize her.
She is being held in the Seneca County Jail, pending her arraignment.
