A 26-year-old teacher from Arizona, US, has been arrested after carrying out a variety of inappropriate acts with a 13-year-old schoolboy.
Kara Loofborough, who taught at Fees College Preparatory Middle School, sent sexually explicit selfies and pictures of herself performing sex acts on a man while also sexually video chatting with the boy. She was arrested on 20th April where she admitted to both acts.
The teacher also let the boy kiss her and touch her breasts. Police investigated the crime after the boy’s dad called the cops when he grew concerned over the boy’s communication with Kara. They found that the pupil had been messaging on Facebook and video chatting with her.
After questioning, the teen admitted to the police that Kara had exposed herself on video chat and she also showed him a video of her giving head to another man. Grim. A letter from the school’s officials to parents following Kara’s arrest said:
At the time she was hired, she had no criminal history reported based on the District’s fingerprint.
Record checks with the Arizona Department of Public Safety and her background check by the District revealed no adverse findings.
This situation is extremely disturbing for everyone, but we must continue to be focused on teaching and learning for our students and to allow Tempe Police Department to conduct a thorough investigation.
Lara now faces several charges and she currently remains in police custody. As I always say with these stories, it almost seems like they’re a dime a dozen these days. It’s mad to think there are so many grown men and women out there, ready to exploit the vulnerability of a young person’s sexual curiosity. In Lara’s case, hopefully the court rules that she will never be allowed to set foot in a school ever again because she’s obviously got something sick within her if she thinks that sending sexual videos to a 13-year-old is acceptable behaviour.
