Cara Alexander, Virginia H.S. Teacher, Arrested For Sexting Nude Pics to Student

A 27-year-old high school teacher in Virginia has been arrested for sexting a former student after his parents found nude pictures of her on his phone.

Cara Alexander, an English teacher at Woodside H.S. in Newport News, was charged with several offenses, including contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The 17-year-old student told his parents that he is also in a relationship with Cara Alexander, a full-time ninth-grade teacher at the school since 2010.

While the teenager was previously her student, he currently attends a different school, a Newport News Public Schools spokeswoman told The Virginian-Pilot.

The district plans to ask the state to revoke Alexander’s teaching license.

Some of the parents of Alexander's students, meanwhile, said they’re stunned by the allegations against a young woman liked by adults and students.

Parent Anthony Bailey said that his teenage son (not the victim) recalled Alexander as “a very nice teacher and ... he had a good time in her class.”

“It is very disappointing,” Bailey added of the surprising arrest report.

Alexander was jailed in Newport News Sunday with no bond set.

It's not clear what type of sentence she'll face when this is plea bargained, as it will be in all likelihood, but she may want to consider a career change.

Actually, she may not have a choice in the matter.

Moral and ethical issues aside, how are you crazy enough to think you won't get caught!? You're sending nude photos, of yourself, to an underage boy.

Who lives with his parents.

The boy was 17 and the age of consent is 16. Not to mention there are tons of couples that are 10 years apart. At what point is that age difference allowed? She wasn't even his teacher anymore so how is it illegal? You know damn well he didn't have a problem with it and was well aware of what was going on. She is dumb for taking the risk, but really she didn't do anything illegal.

The age of consent in Virginia is 18, with a close in age exception that allows teenagers aged 15 to 17 to engage in sexual acts but only with a partner younger than 18.

I was thinking the same damn thing. And hell 17, he is almost 18 why the hell do these people care. If a 17 year old sleeps with a 17 year old it is not a big deal but if they're a teacher then all hell brakes loose.

I actually know her and know that she is a beautiful, wonderful person who made a mistake. Don't be an ignorant loser who judges her, thanks.

So how will you feel when it's your seventeen year old son being taken advantage of by a person who you are entrusting to teach and instill knowledge in your child? Is it still going to be a "mistake"?
Wonderful people generally don't cheat on their spouses, either.

I think she thought the fact that they were at different schools would make it okay.
