43-year-old Jody Onorato, a high school clerk in Florida, was arrested on Friday and charged with two counts of transmitting harmful material to a minor after sending dozens of naked pictures of herself to two students in the past year, according to the Star-Banner newspaper.
Onorato was formerly an attendance clerk at Vanguard High School in Ocala, and police say that along with the pictures, she also exchanged several “sexual” texts with juveniles in the past year. One student is 17 and the other is currently 19, but was 18 and considered a minor when the exchanges occurred.
Police were alerted to the exchange when the 17-year-old confessed to his mother that he had kept and received 26 nude photos from Onorato along with several racy text messages. The 19-year-old now-graduate said he also received numerous photos but deleted them.
Onorato was said to have apologized when confronted by the mothers and both the teens and Onorato say that no sexual contact was involved outside of the exchanges.
