    Ventura County Star: Substitute teacher ordered to stand trial over charge of 'sexting' student (Dec 4 2012)

    Vanessa Tsakrios, 25, of Camarillo, and the Pacifica High School student exchanged sexually explicit text messages and photos, Oxnard police Detective Erica Escalante testified. Escalante described an incident in which Tsakrios kissed the boy after a science laboratory class ended and other students had left the room. The boy had skipped football practice and gone up to the class where Tsakrios was substitute teaching, according to Escalante. "She said there were flirtations, and she also said she crossed the line in the student-teacher relationship," Escalante testified. "There was a lot of messaging, actually, between those two phones. "She just felt they had a connection that was beyond the actual reality, perhaps. She explained she had emotional and mental connections with him." Superior Court Judge Brian Back ruled that Tsakrios, arrested in June by Oxnard police, should be held to answer to one charge of luring of a child.
