SAN ANTONIO (AP) — An ex-school counselor in South Texas who texted nude photos of herself to a 15-year-old boy has been sentenced to six years in prison.
A judge in San Antonio on Monday sentenced 43-year-old Cynthia Stewart. She pleaded no contest to online solicitation of a minor in a plea deal.
Investigators say the case involved a teen from outside the Judson Independent School District. School board members in November fired Stewart, who had worked at Olympia Elementary School.
Investigators say Stewart texted inappropriate photos and messages to the teen. She was arrested after the boy’s parents noticed he was texting someone at odd hours.
The defense had sought probation for Stewart, who must also register as a sex offender.
