Ivy Reneau, 28, a former Midwest City Middle School teacher, is facing a felony charge for allegedly sending naked pictures to a teen
A similar incident took place with another Oklahoma middle school teacher in May.
Ivy Reneau, 28, faces felony charges over claims she sexted a 16-year-old boy after telling him she’d ‘heard he liked her.’
Reneau is charged with using technology to engage in communication for sexual prurient interest with a minor and there was a warrant out for her arrest. Oklahoma’s age of consent is 16, but adults in a position of authority can still be charged for having sexual relationships with children aged 18 and under.
Court documents filed in Oklahoma County District Court reveal that Reneau met the teen, who is a student in the district, at a soccer practice.
Reneau was an assistant soccer coach at the time ‘heard rumors that he liked her and wanted to watch her run,’ KFOR reported citing court documents.
Reneau allegedly then added the teen on Snapchat and sent him three or four nude photos and an inappropriate video which the teen showed to a few of his teammates, according to court records
