Texas English Teacher Lesley Sharp Accused of Child Porn and Repeatedly Having Sex With a 17-Year-Old Student

Dallas, Texas

Well, it looks like Dallas High School is short of a teacher today after one of their own has been jailed for getting frisky with a student.

A mother discovered 24-year-old Lesley Ann Sharp in a pool, fiddling with her 17-year-old son, according to police.

The pool incident led to an investigation that resulted in charges of improper relationship between educator and student, possession or promotion of child pornography, tampering with physical evidence and perjury.

Sharp, an English teacher at Dallas High School, is accused of having sex with the 17-year-old more than 25 times, in locations such as her car, her apartment and even "in his apartment while the student’s parents were not home."

According to investigators, the child pornography charges are based on explicit photos that Sharp allegedly exchanged with the boy via text message. Police allege that Sharp and the student, a freshman at Hillcrest High School, “exchanged 116 telephone calls, 173 multi-media messages and 15,371 text messages” between May and July of this year.

Once Sharp learned of the investigation, authorities say she allegedly tried to delete information synced from her iPhone to her school-issued laptop before handing the computer over to investigators. Police also claim Sharp told the victim to delete photos and messages after she learned of the investigation.

Sharp has been placed on leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.
