Lynn Burge, a 32-year-old Muenster High school teacher in Texas, was arrested on Thursday, October 18, after she was accused of having sex with two separate students.
According to Burge’s arrest warrant, the 32-year-old Burge allegedly began sending nude photographs of herself to a 16-year-old male student on SnapChat last fall.
The warrant says Burge and the student went “backroading” and drank alcohol together before going back to Burge’s house where she performed oral sex on him before having intercourse, KXII reports. Then, the following March, Bruge allegedly did the same thing with an 18-year-old adult student.
Burge was arrested on Thursday, October 18 and posted $125,000 bond the next day
The Department of Family and Protective services received an anonymous tip about Burge in September. After a month-long investigation, a Texas Ranger held an informal interview with Burge last week at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas, where she was a chaperone on a school field trip.
Burge admitted to the Ranger she had sex with the 18-year-old, and to swapping nudes with the 16-year-old. She also confessed to drinking and “backroading” with – then waking up next to – the 16 year old, but told the Ranger she couldn’t remember if they’d had sex.
Burge is just the latest teacher to be charged for inappropriate conduct. Over the course of just a few months, educators across the country were arrested for entering into an inappropriate relationship with their students, Tennessee teacher Janet Smothers, LaToya Parker, Florida teacher Caroline Lawson, 26-year-old Allyson Moran and Katherine Ross Ridenhour were all arrested on similar charges. A woman named Kayla Sprinkles was arrested in North Carolina for similar sexual crimes.
The list goes on to include 22-year-old Oklahoma science teacher Hunter Day, 28-year-old teacher Megan Kotarski, 23-year-old history teacher Michelle Schiffer, 29-year-old Alyssia Marie Reddy, special education teacher Jordan Ondish and 28-year-old Samantha Fitzpatrick have all been allegedly carrying on inappropriate relationships with their students.
34-year-old Miranda Nicole Pauley was charged with similar crimes, Nancy Leigh Ann Brann, a former Christian school teacher, was arrested for having sex with a student, Coine Audiat pleaded no contest to having sex with a minor in 2016 and 23-year-old Darci Lake was arrested for an inappropriate relationship. 27-year-old Brittany Zamora from Arizona was arrested on similar charges. Keri Hoffman, 35, was also arrested for an alleged relationship with a student. Similarly, 29-year-old Tiffany Ranweiler-Oblander and 33-year-old Maren Oates were arrested on similar charges.
