Delaware State Police have charged a middle school music teacher with sending sexually explicit pictures and video to a 13-year-old male student.
Troopers said in a news release that 32-year-old Nicole Veneroso of Newark was charged Wednesday with sexual solicitation of a child under 18, sexual abuse of a child by a person of trust and other offenses. She is being held at the Delores Baylor Correctional Institution; it could not be determined if Veneroso has a lawyer.
Police say in January, the mother of the student contacted administrators at Everett Meredith Middle School, where Veneroso taught. Authorities say the mother found sexually explicit images of a teacher on her son’s cellphone.
Investigators say Veneroso had been sending the student sexually explicit photos, videos and text messages since December.
