Charges dropped against teacher accused of sex offences

Sonya Russell is no longer a teacher – but she isn't facing any criminal charges either.

Russell was taken out of the classroom at Preston High School in 2013, when accusations of sexual misconduct involving a then-16-year-old male student first surfaced.

Court documents show that she and the student began chatting via Facebook in March 2012.

The conversations initially related to alcohol consumption.

Within a few weeks, court documents show, they turned to comments the student perceived to be “flirtatious or sexual in nature.”

Those comments included references to a hot tub and a query as to whether the student was “more of a bathing suit guy or an au naturel guy.”

At one point, Russell said that if she knew the student when she was in high school, she would have “given my left booby for a chance with you.”  (more...)
