A 37-year-old Katy, Texas, mother, Lori Darling David, was arrested Thursday for soliciting a minor for sex. Police report, according to KHOU in Houston, that Lori Darling David targeted a 16-year-old friend and classmate of her teen son’s for sex, going so far as to send him nude pictures of herself in addition to having sexually-oriented conversations with the minor.
Lori Darling David’s connection to the teen was not only through her son, police learned in their investigation. The minor was also the son of a former “jogging buddy” of David’s.
And still there was another connection…
According to KHOU, the victim said he was befriended by David when she worked as a volunteer at Katy Taylor High School. She asked if she could be his friend on Facebook. The two began communicating on the social networking site and soon their conversations became sexual. David and the teenager also communicated via e-mail and text message on a regular basis.
According to the New York Daily News, it was the victim’s parents that discovered what was happening between Lori Darling David and their teenager. They notified authorities after finding sexual e-mails addressed to their son.
Court documents indicate that David sent two nude photos of herself to the teen on October 14. After a search warrant was executed at Lori Darling David’s house, David confessed to having sent the lewd pictures. She was subsequently arrested and taken to Harris County Jail, where she later posted bail.
But Lori Darling David’s use of school settings as a platform for a sexual relationship have become quite commonplace. The Contra Costa Times reported Thursday that Felicia Shareese Killings, 27, an English teacher at Rodriguez High School in Fairfield, California, was arrested Tuesday evening on suspicion of six counts of statutory rape involving a minor more than three years her junior and two counts of oral copulation with a person under the age of 18. Investigators believe that there are several other students, current and former, with whom Killings may be involved.
Sara Leann Dwiggins, a math teacher at South Creek Middle School in Robersonville, N. C., was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of statutory rape and another two counts of sex offense with a student. WITN in Greenville reported that the charges stemmed around a stint she did at Bear Grass School before it closed. Authorities say that Dwiggins had sex twice with a student between the ages of 13 and 15.
