Katy, TX – A Texas high school paraprofessional has been accused of sending nude photos and videos of herself to a 15-year-old male student.
Kelsie Rochelle Koepke, 25, has been arrested on charged of online solicitation of a minor and having an improper relationship, KPRC reported.
She was a working as a paraprofessional at Paetow High School in October of 2017, when she first met the victim at a school event, he told investigators.
During that initial meeting, Koepke allegedly provided the teen with her Snapchat username, “Momma K,” and the two began chatting through the app, the boy said.
She also allegedly told the teen not to save their conversations.
Approximately two weeks later, on Homecoming night, Koepke sent him the first set of nude videos and photos of herself.
The next day, she found the teen at school and said, “I can’t believe I did that,” the victim told police.
She apologized for what she had done, but sent him more nude videos and photos of herself a few days later.
In May of 2018, Koepke allegedly sent the boy a video that showed her masturbating, the New York Post reported.
The school employee’s face was clearly visible in at least one of the videos, police said.
Koepke later told investigators that she sent the photos and videos to the teen by mistake, and that she initially thought she was sending them to someone else she had met on a dating website.
She only sent her student more photos and videos in order to “keep the peace,” she claimed.
School administrators became aware of Koepke’s alleged conduct after another student “noticed a conversation on social media regarding inappropriate content” Koepke and a student were sharing with each other, Paetow High School Principal Mindy Dickerson said in a letter to parents and guardians, according to KTRK.
Koepke, who was also responsible for overseeing the boy’s lunch period, was fired by the school district on Wednesday.
“Please be assured that the District takes this allegation very seriously and is fully cooperating with law enforcement,” Dickerson wrote. “Providing a safe and secure learning environment is and will continue to be our top priority and the District will always act swiftly when that is compromised.”
Koepke is due back in court on May 7, the New York Post reported.
