A married 34 year old school teacher from Texas has been accused of sexually abusing a 15 year old male student. Julie Ann Moore, a third grade teacher at Sanborn Elementary, allegedly engaged in explicit sexual activity with a 15 year old Amarillo High School student.
The Daily Mail reports that Moore turned herself into the authorities following a month long investigation into her alleged sexual relations with the high school student. The complaint lodged against Moore stated that she lured the boy to her car during a high school football game.
Once in the car, she showed him a box of condoms, drove to a more secluded area, and proceeded to have sex with him for 10 to 15 minutes after removing both their clothes. Following the incident, Moore drove the student back to the football game before the second half commenced.

On November 11, items including a Dell computer, two USB drives, and an AT&T Subscriber Identity Module card were all seized from Moore’s home by Texas Rangers for investigation. A week prior to the searches, a Ranger met with the 15 year old boy who detailed “three sexual encounters” between him and the elementary school teacher, says the Daily Mail.
According to an affidavit, approximately 100 text messages were exchanged between him and Moore from June through August of this year, half of them being “extremely sexually explicit.”
The student told officials how Moore rubbed the front of his pants, kissed him with an open mouth, and offered him oral sex. A DPS official told investigators that he observed the pair “hugging, sitting next to each other during the football game, walking off together and speaking privately together for a lengthy amount of time.”
The Daily Mail also reports that if found guilty, Moore could face between 2 and 20 years in jail, as well as a $10,000 fine.
