A 26-year-old former Simley High School student teacher accused of sending naked pictures of herself to a 17-year-old student pleaded not guilty yesterday in Dakota County criminal court.
Jenna Anne Schultz, of Minnetonka, was charged May 25 with two counts of felony stalking and a count of contributing to the deliqunency of a minor after allegedly sending the boy a series of explicit messages via Facebook.
According to the criminal complaint, the messages from Schultz got progressively more graphic and culminated with a photo of her completely naked.
In a post-arrest interview, Schultz told police she did not recall sending the boy the photo or texting him. She chalked up the alleged behavior to being "really drunk."
Hennepin County Sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant on Schultz's home and vehicles on June 12.
Schultz is scheduled to appear at a settlement conference on Nov. 28 and, if necessary, a jury trial on Dec. 17. If convicted of the felony stalking charge, she faces up to ten years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
