Mother of Three Accused of Sending Nude Pics to Boy, Having Sex with Him


Kathleen Cawthorne, 32-year-old former teacher at William Campbell High School, Rustburg, Virginia, accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student, has pleaded no contest to one count of taking indecent liberties with a minor and three counts of electronic solicitation of a minor.

Cawthorne was arrested in April 2012 on charges are based on incidents deputies believe took place between March 7 and March 13 when Cawthorne was a teacher at William Campbell Combined School. The student asked Cawthorne for her phone number, and the two began texting each other. The texts were of a sexual nature. On March 13, 2012, the two met at a store in Campbell County and rode around together in the student’s car, and the two had sexual intercourse. Cawthorne also sent photos of herself showing the “upper part of her body” to the student.

Another teacher was shown the photos on another student’s phone and went to the principal. Wwhen the principal confronted Cawthorne, she admitted that the photos were of her and that she had allowed the student to touch her in private areas, but denied having sexual intercourse with the student. Kathleen Cawthorne, married mother of three, was released from her position with the school in March after the allegations surfaced.

The indecent liberties statute incorporates sexual touching or exposure.

Judge John Cook found Cawthorne guilty on all counts and ordered a presentence report, but continued the case to March, when a sentencing date will be set.
