Memphis, Tenn (The Weekly Vice) - Ruth Shrader, a 50-year-old special education teacher at Stafford Academy in Tennessee was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly engaged in a two-year-long sexual relationship with a teen, beginning when he was 15-years-old.
According to police, Shrader's relationship with the boy began two years ago when she began providing him with massages. The relationship progressed when the pair began exchanging sexually explicit text messages and eventually developed into a consensual sexual relationship.
Investigators say Shrader was a godmother to the family and an assistant pastor at the family's church. She allegedly groomed the boy by providing him gifts, money and trips.
Shrader was booked into the Shelby County Jail on a charge of statutory rape by an authority figure. She was released after posting a $10,000 bond.
