Orlando Police arrested a karate instructor for allegedly sending an 11-year-old over a dozen nude photos and told him that she wanted to have sex with him.

Authorities were notified after the boy’s mother opened the Kik app on his phone and saw inappropriate messages from his karate teacher, 21-year old Stephannie Figueroa, according to police.

According to the Santa Monica Observer, the local district attorney filed charges against Figueroa, including solicitation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, attempted lewd or lascivious conduct, child abuse, and showing a juvenile obscene material.

One text message that the boy received from Figueroa said that she “could not wait for another sleepover at the karate school” and that she “could have sex with him in a hard way.”

The boy told his mother that his karate instructor was sending him naked pictures of herself and showing him her “private parts.”

According to the Orlando Sentinel, he told police that Figueroa had been flirting with him and that she began attempting to seduce him back in February.

The owner of the karate facility where Figueroa was employed, Next-Gen Xtreme Martial Arts, admitted that there were sleepovers at the school, but there had never been any inappropriate conduct between the teacher and student.

Officials said that the boy acknowledged that Figueroa had texted him 15 nude pictures and then asked him to come to her 21st birthday party just last week.

The boy also confessed to police that his teacher slid her hand on his thigh during the sleepover, but he asked her to stop. She also reportedly said to him that she wanted to have sex with him when no one was home.

All the boy responded was: “Ok IDC (I don’t care).”

Figueroa is currently in custody at the Orange County Jail and is being held without bail.
