A karate teacher in Orlando, Florida sent an 11-year-old boy in her class nude photos and told him she wanted to have sex with him. Now she’s in trouble for it.

21-year-old Stephannie Figueroa has been charged with attempted lewd or lascivious conduct, solicitation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, showing a minor obscene material, and child abuse.

The boy’s mother had gotten on his phone and found the saucy instructor’s disturbing and explicit messages on his Kik messaging app.

“I want to have sex with you,” she said in one message which was an invitation to her 21st birthday party.

“OK IDC,” he replied; shorthand for “I don’t care.”

She told him that nobody else would be home during the party, and began making her moves on him back in February. She kept telling him that she liked him, according to the boy.

Authorities say she sent him 15 nude or risqué photos.

A man claiming to be the owner of the karate school told a news station that he’d found no evidence that Ms. Figueroa had tried to molest the boy at the location, after he checked his security cameras.

She was held without bond in Orange County jail, and authorities believe she may have preyed upon other children at the school as well.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact them.
