Female teacher sent explicit pictures of herself to students

Jennifer Sowa Smith, 29-year-old teacher at Steel Valley High School, Munhall, Pennsylvania, is facing charges that she sent sexually explicit pictures of herself to at least five male students.

According to the criminal court docket, Jennifer Sowa Smith was arraigned at District Judge Thomas Torkowsky's office on several charges, including two felony counts each of unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of minors, another felony count of criminal use of a communication facility and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of children. Bail was set at $25,000.

Court documents say the Steel Valley High School teacher sent nude pictures of herself to the teens, two of whom were under 16. Smith is also accused of propositioning at least two of the teens.

Smith texted photos of her breasts and vagina, according to a criminal complaint. She is not accused of sexually assaulting any of the students.

Detectives began investigating after Steel Valley Principal Jeff Soles interviewed four students about receiving inappropriate texts from Smith. Students circulated the photos among themselves, though Smith told them to delete them, the complaint said.

Smith told a student she wanted to have sex with him on her desk, but he said he didn't want to cheat on his girlfriend, the complaint said. Also in one of the text message exchanges Smith told a student that she wanted to perform oral sex on him after school in her class. From March 15 to April 20, the two traded more than 250 text messages, according to the complaint.

"Sowa Smith asked (another student) to come over her house to have sex and drink together" several times, the complaint said. Another student received nude pictures from Smith, and "he stated that she would say, 'My husband is never home. I am so lonely and haven't had sex forever,'" according to the complaint.
