A Titusville teacher’s Aide was arrested on a warrant after an investigation by Titusville Detectives that began when a parent notified police.
LINDSEY NOELE THORSON, 27, of Country Club Drive Titusville, turned herself into Brevard County Jail late Friday, February 21st after a warrant was issued for TRANSMISSION OF MATERIALS HARMFUL TO MINORS and TAMPERING WITH EVIDENCE.
The investigation revealed that a 16 year-old student of Fieldston Preparatory School on Columbia Boulevard, Titusville had explicit photos on his cell phone that were sent to him by a teacher’s aid at the school. A faculty member was notified of the allegations by the student, but it was a parent that came forward to report the incidents to police.
Sources familiar with the case say that school officials did not immediately contact police
“This case provides an important reminder that school officials, by law, are mandatory reporters of suspected abuse, regardless of whether they believe the allegations or not”, said lead Detective Jessica Cabrera.
THORSON was booked into Brevard County Jail.
