Ivy Reneau, 28, is charged with using technology to engage in lewd sexual interest communication with a minor and there is a warrant out for her arrest.
The former Midwest City Middle School teacher has yet to be arrested. Oklahoma’s age of consent is 16, but adults in a position of authority can still be charged for having sex with children under 18.
New court documents filed in Oklahoma County District Court reveal that Reneau met the teen, who is a student in the district, at soccer practice.
Reneau was an assistant football coach at the time “heard rumors that he liked her and wanted to see her run.” KFOR reported citing court documents.
Reneau allegedly added the teen on Snapchat and sent him three or four nude photos and an inappropriate video that the teen showed to some of his teammates, according to court records.
Social media expert Patrick Allmond told KFOR that social media users should assume that any photo they submit could also be posted on a billboard for all to see, despite the idea that with Snapchat, images theoretically they disappear after a short time.
“Often with young people and our teachers there is an implicit sense of trust,” Allmond said. “One of the advantages of Snapchat has been that it’s very short, it’s very fast, and then it’s gone and theoretically gone forever.”
“Before you hit send, you have to assume that you might as well be taking that photo and putting it up on a billboard on the side of, you know, Broadway Extension.”
Reneau (in an undated Twitter photo with an unidentified individual) allegedly added the teen on Snapchat and sent him nude photos and an inappropriate video.
The Mid-Del School District confirmed to KFOR that Reneau, who worked at Midwest City High School at the time he allegedly sent the photos, no longer works with them.
Reneau admitted to Midwest City police that he sent the photos to the teen, but denied any physical relationship, KFOR reported.
The former teacher only confessed that they had “talked about hanging out once, but never did,” according to court documents.
The school district previously issued a statement to KFOR about the incident and confirmed that Reneau is no longer employed by Mid-Del Schools. However, the photo of him appears to still be in the staff directory on the school’s website.
‘District officials were notified of an alleged relationship between a Mid-Del staff member and a student. We reported the information to the police so they could start an investigation. The staff member is no longer employed by Mid-Del Schools and we have worked closely with the student’s family in the wake of this allegation. We will continue to cooperate fully with the authorities.’
Reneau now faces a felony charge and has not yet been arrested.
