Burgaw, N.C. (The Weekly Vice) - Megan Mantooth, a 26-year-old teacher at Burgaw Middle School in North Carolina has been charged after she allegedly cyber-stalked a 13-year-old student.

According to police, an investigation was launched when the mother of a 13-year-old boy checked her son's cell phone and discovered hundreds of text messages from Mantooth that were of an inappropriate nature.

Investigators say Mantooth began communicating with the student via text messaging on June 9th and continued up until his parents discovered the messages.

Some of the messages included statements like:

"When I do finally get to see you, I want you to wrap your arms around me and lift me up and spin me around...Will you do that?"

"I think about u so much I can't tell between my thoughts and dreams now."


"She got to the point that she wanted to know.. she said she couldn't go a day without seeing him and that she wanted to see him now. Her heart was beating five hundred times a minute. I think she was developing a relationship with him," stated the boy's mother.

School administrators say Mantooth has been suspended while the case is being investigated. Other parents have now come forward stating that Mantooth had inappropriate conversations with their children as well.

Mantooth was charged with cyberstalking a student.

UPDATE:

Megan Mantooth pleaded guilty in July to charges that she engaged in innappropriate texts with the victim. Mantooth was sentenced to a three year probation period in exchange for her guilty plea.

Following her plea, Mantooth delivered a prepared statement that addressed the court and the victim's family.

"I am deeply, terribly sorry for the pain and anguish I have caused," Mantooth wrote. "I myself am in complete and total shock that this situation went as far as it did. I knew better than to do what I was doing. There are no excuses for my actions, and I sincerely regret them. I apologize to everyone involved in the situation. I promise that I will never do anything like this again. I am deeply ashamed of what has happened - I knew lines had been crossed and said things that should never have been said. I implore you for your forgiveness."
