A school counselor has been fired for sending sexually explicit texts and nude pictures of herself to a 15-year-old boy, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Cynthia Stewart, 43, was fired by the Judson school district, even though initial federal charges of online solicitation of a minor have been dropped. The Express-News says the state is investigating allegations that the woman might have had sex with the boy.
The boy's parents discovered the illicit communications after noticing he was texting at odd hours, the paper says.
