Teacher accused of sending nude pictures and sex with teen boy


Makayla Dawn Redding, 34-year-old former substitute teacher at Timberlake Public Schools, Cherokee, Oklahoma, has been accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy.

Redding faces two counts of lewd molestation, two counts of transmitting information by computer for purpose of instigating sexual conduct with a minor and one count of forcible sodomy.

According to an affidavit, the boy’s mother had made a report about her son receiving sexual text messages from a woman she identified as Redding, who she said was a substitute teacher at Timberlake Public Schools, where her son attended. The woman was able to provide cell phone records from her cell phone provider. The mother of the alleged victim became suspicious when her cell phone bill was much bigger than usual. When she began looking at her account she found a large number of text messages and saw her son’s phone had registered more than 500 text messages in less than a week, according to the affidavit.

An investigaor reviewed some of the messages sent between the phones and described them in his affidavit as “sexual in nature and extremely explicit and graphic.” He also noted records indicated there were videos and photographs sent between the phones. An Aug. 24 message from Redding to the boy asked him to come stay at her house. A message from the boy’s phone asked Redding if she had spoken to his mother about him spending the night for her son’s birthday party, according to the affidavit.

When Redding was asker if she knew why police wanted to talk to her, and she said she did and it was because of the boy she had been texting, according to the affidavit. Redding waived her rights and agreed to speak withinvestigators. She told the men she began text messaging the boy around May and after a few weeks the boy admitted to having a crush on her and they began text messaging back and forth about sex. Redding admitted to taking at least 20 pictures of herself naked to the boy to the boy and the boy having sent her pictures of him naked, too. She also admitted to making at least three explicit videos of herself and sending them to the boy, according to the affidavit.

She told investigators she and the boy met at her home about a month ago and “made out,” touching one another on top of their clothes, according to the affidavit.

The boy told Frisk he got Redding’s number from her Facebook account and began text messaging her about a year ago. He said he and Redding began text messaging sexual comments back and forth, and he said he’d sent her naked pictures of himself and she had sent some of herself back to him, according to the affidavit. He also said they had exchanged explicit videos of themselves. The boy also said he had sex with Redding at her home sometime in July.

Banks and Frisk again interviewed Redding at the Alfalfa County jail, and she admitted to having sexual contact with the boy at her home in Helena, according to the affidavit.

Redding was ordered to return to court Sept. 12 and is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond, with a condition of bond being she remain away from the alleged victim in the case.
