Educator accused of sending racy photo to middle school student

Manatee County, FL - (NBC) - A Florida assistant principal has been arrested after allegedly sending a topless photo of herself to a middle school student.

Investigators say Lauren Tilo, a 30-year-old assistant principal at Tampa's Middleton High School never met the 14-year-old boy she sent the photo to.

Manatee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dave Bristow said the pair met while playing "World of Warcraft," an online role-playing game and exchanged several explicit messages.

The boy, a student at a Manatee County middle school, told a guidance counselor about the photo after a falling out with Tilo.

Tilo is in the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of transmission of materials harmful to a minor.

Her bail is set at $10,000.
