HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) - A Texas Ranger has arrested a Huntington ISD teacher accused of sending a nude photo of herself to a 14-year-old former student.

Kylie Rexann Modisette, 28, is charged with Class A misdemeanor distribution of harmful material to a minor.

According to an arrest affidavit, Huntington ISD Police contacted Ranger Travis Brazil on April 4, requesting assistance with the investigation.

Brazil reported learning that Modisette, who teaches on the middle school campus, had sent nude photographs of herself to the student through Snapchat in December. The boy was able to delete the photos from his cellphone, but not before other students had taken a screenshot and distributed to multiple students throughout the school

The boy told authorities that Modisette had sent him multiple photos and that he was a former student of hers.

Law enforcement then interviewed Modisette, who confessed to sending two photos to the student, according to the affidavit.

Brazil obtained a warrant for Modisette's arrest on Thursday. Modisette was booked into the county jail on Thursday and has posted a $1,500 bail.

HISD Superintendent David Flowers confirmed they investigated a teacher and have placed them on administrative leave pending the investigation.
