Pennsylvania Police arrested former high school teacher Stephanie France Luckey on charges of having “inappropriate contact” with a minor after allegedly sending a 17-year-old student a video of herself performing a sexual act, according to authorities.

Police say 37-year-old educator also sent up to 10 naked pictures of herself to the underage youth while she was teaching English at Muhlenberg High School in Berks County, Pennsylvania.

According to local Fox43 affiliate, an investigation was initiated back in June after a complaint was received by prosecutors of allegations of “inappropriate contact” with the boy involving that Stephanie France Luckey.

Further probing unveiled that Luckey made a private Twitter account so she could talk to the student from April through June. The dialogue soon “turned sexual in nature,” according to Berks County prosecutors, with Luckey sending the student the video and nude photographs of herself.

Prosecutors also said the boy had told investigators he and the teacher would make out after school in her classroom.

The Berks County District Attorney’s Office stated that the teacher confessed to the accusations against her during a line of questioning with detectives back in July. She officially resigned from her post at the high school in August.

Law enforcement officials said on Tuesday, that Luckey turned herself to police on charges of corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor. She remains behind bars on $25,000 bail.

In a statement to WFMZ.com, the district’s superintendent, Joseph Macharola said that woman’s contact with students was terminated when school officials found out about the investigation.

“These actions are not to be tolerated. This behavior is despicable and outrageous … There is absolutely no place in public education or any organization where the employee’s trust and integrity was compromised by deplorable judgment [sic] while engaging with children or young adults. We will not tolerate such predatory conduct.”
