Tiana Sanchez, a teacher and volleyball coach at a New Mexico high school has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a male student on multiple occasions and sending him X-rated photos and texts.
Sanchez, 31, a math teacher at Silver High School, was taken into custody by the New Mexico State Police on Thursday on four counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor.
The arrest came a week after the victim’s mother contacted the authorities saying she was concerned about a possible inappropriate relationship between her teenage son and his teacher, reported Silver City Daily Press.
She also handed police her son’s phone, suspecting the device contained messages and images of a sexual nature.
When interviewed by police, the boy allegedly admitted that he had sex with Sanchez four times within the past month.
Until last week, Sanchez who is married had taught math and was the head volleyball coach at Silver High School in Silver City, New Mexico.
He also confirmed that the pair had exchanged text messages and sexually explicit photos, some of which were stored on the boy’s phone, police stated.
Sanchez was booked into the Grant County Detention Center Thursday evening and was released an hour later after posting $5,000 bond.
In her booking photo released by the state police, Sanchez appears to have a black eye, although it is unclear how she got that bruise.
Silver Schools Superintendent Audie Brown stated earlier this week that the 31-year-old ex-teacher was no longer employed at the school.
As of Friday afternoon, Sanchez’ name was no longer listed in the staff directory on the school’s official website.
