LARGO, Fla. -- A fourth-grade teacher has been charged with sending nude images to a teenager after they were caught together in a rec center bathroom.
Largo police on Monday were called to the Highland Recreation Center, 400 Highland Ave., after a report that a woman and a juvenile were seen entering a unisex restroom on the second floor, police said. The woman and boy remained inside for about 10 minutes before police arrived.
Lesley R. Brown, 45, a teacher at Fuguitt Elementary School, told police she goes to the gym three days a week and the 17-year-old boy is her workout partner and spotter.
Both denied anything occurred in the bathroom and said they locked the door because they heard voices and didn't want it to appear as if something was going on, according to a police report.
The boy's mother arrived and took custody of her son.
Later, police found nude images of Brown on the boy's cellphone along with lewd texts from her, police said.
Brown was then arrested on two felony counts of transmission of material harmful to minors. She has been transported to the Pinellas County Jail.
She also was got a trespass warning from staff at the recreation center.
