Paraprofessional sends nude pictures, sexually explicit videos of herself to 15-year-old male student on Snapchat
A paraprofessional educator from Texas has been arrested for allegedly sending a teenage male student an explicit video of her pleasuring herself on Snapchat. The woman, identified as 25-year-old Kelsie Rochelle Koepke, was reportedly released on Wednesday on $15,000 bond.
The mother-of-one was charged with felony counts of online solicitation of a minor and improper relationship with a student. A probe into the educator, who is part of the support staff, was launched on February 28 after a student at Paetow High School in Katy saw the exchange of inappropriate content between the two on social media. The woman, who has a six-year-old daughter, surrendered to police on Wednesday. She is set to make an appearance in court on May 7.
After officials interviewed the teenager, he said that he first met Koepke in October 2017 at a school event and, at the time, the paraprofessional gave him her Snapchat user name "Momma K" so that they both could communicate with each other.
Koepke, according to a probable cause affidavit, instructed the 15-year-old to not save any of their exchanges online. She allegedly sent the boy nude pictures and two extremely graphic videos depicting her masturbating on Homecoming night last year, according to KTRK.
Koepke reportedly approached the student the next day and apologized, saying "I can't believe I did that." However, charging documents state that she sent more sexually explicit content displaying her exposed breasts and videos of herself just a few days later. Koepke, during an initial questioning in March, had claimed that she had mistaken the student for someone else she had met on a dating app. She also said that she had sent explicit videos and images to multiple different people.
She claimed that when she realized her mistake, she kept the student on her Snapchat and sent him more lewd images to "keep the peace."
A Katy Independent School District police officer, who reviewed the content shared by the paraprofessional with the student, said that in one of the videos Koepke's face is clearly visible.
The high school reportedly sent a letter to the student's parents saying that the paraprofessional in question had been removed from her position.
