Helena, OK (The Weekly Vice) - Makayla Redding, a 34-year-old substitute teacher at Timberlake Public Schools was jailed Thursday after she allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old student.
According to the Alfalfa County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched last week after the mother of a 15-year-old boy noticed a spike in her cell phone bill and discovered that her son and Redding had exchanged more than 1,000 text messages on a recent bill.
Investigators, who obtained a search warrant for Redding's phone, reviewed the messages and described many of them as "sexual in nature and extremely explicit and graphic."
In a message dated August 24, Redding allegedly asked the boy to stay the night at her home, and the boy responded by asking Redding to contact his mother and suggest a sleepover with her teen son.
When detectives interviewed Redding, she stated that she and the boy began text messaging each other in May of this year and that she had sent the boy several sexually explicit photographs and videos of herself. Redding initially stated that she and the boy only "made out" at her home, but later admitted to having sex with him.
Police interviewed the boy who also admitted to exchanging nude photographs and explicit videos with Redding.
Redding was booked into the Alfalfa County Jail and charged with two felony counts of lewd molestation, two felony counts of transmitting information by computer for a purpose of instigating sexual conduct with a minor and one felony count of forcible sodomy. Redding remains jailed in lieu of $50,000 bond.
