A former student teacher at Simley High School in Inver Grove Heights who texted a student a nude picture of herself pleaded guilty Wednesday to a gross-misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Jenna A. Schultz, 26, of Minnetonka, was charged in May in Dakota County District Court with two felony counts of stalking in addition to the gross misdemeanor.
According to court documents, a 17-year-old boy told police that Schultz had contacted him on Facebook and gave him her personal cellphone number.
They began to text back and forth, and on May 11, Schultz sent the boy a naked picture of herself.
The texts continued for several days, until the boy cut off contact with her "because she was annoying him," the complaint said.
The boy showed other students the photo Schultz had sent him and rumors about it began circulating at the school.
Schultz admitted taking the picture but said she didn't remember sending it to the boy. She said "she must have been really drunk," the complaint said.
Schultz will be sentenced Feb. 12 by District Judge Mary Theisen.
