A high school teacher in Nevada has been arrested on Monday, January 14 after the discovery of “inappropriate messages” between her and a student, police said.
Clark County School District police announced that 27-year-old Breanna Hernandez is facing two counts each of first-degree kidnapping, lewdness and a minor and luring a minor with a computer for a sexual act.
Breanna Hernandez, 27, is a former teacher at Basic Academy of International Studies in Henderson. She was hired by the district in 2015, according to Las Vagas Review-Journal.
Hernandez has not been coming into work since November 2018, when school police began investigating the messages, the Clark County School District Police Department said.
Lt. Darnell Couthen said the investigation was launched after the “inappropriate messages” between Hernandez and the student. However, it was not clear why the kidnapping charges were warranted.
