Julie Ann Moore, a 34-year-old Sanborn Elementary School third-grade teacher, was released on bond Tuesday after turning herself in on a charge she had sex with a 15-year-old at an Amarillo High football game this fall. The Amarillo Independent School District placed Moore on paid leave shortly after authorities last month seized her iPhone.
Moore could face punishment for sexual assault of a child which is a second-degree felony punishable by two to twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
According to the police, an investigation was launched last November after Moore was seen by a Texas ranger acting suspiciously with a young boy at an Amarillo High School football game.
Investigators said that Moore invited the boy to her car during the game's half-time show and showed him a box of condoms in the car's center console.
Moore then allegedly drove the boy to a nearby apartment complex parking lot where the two had sex in the back seat of her car. The pair then returned to the school in time to watch the second half of the football game.
The student told police that he and Moore had exchanged dozens of sexually explicit text messages and inevitably had sex on three separate occasions.
His parents voluntarily surrendered the boy's cell phone and two computers to police for forensic analysis.
Although the arrest report centers on one victim who Moore allegedly had sex with, investigators listed three 15-year-old boys Moore was allegedly sexting with.
In November, Texas Rangers served a search warrant at Moore's home, seizing several electronic devices including a laptop computer, USB flash drives and an AT&T SIM card.
