GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a 22-year-old Sussex Technical High School substitute teacher accused of showing a 15-year-old male student cellphone pictures of herself undressed.

Authorities said Wednesday that Meagan R. Gordon of Bridgeville is charged with one count of providing obscene material to a person under the age of 18.

Police say the investigation began in May after the principal of Sussex Tech in Georgetown received a complaint from the mother of the male student. The student's mother told troopers that her son had been communicating through text messages to a person she believed to be a teacher at the school. The mother further stated to troopers that from the contents of the text messages, she believed her son had viewed several inappropriate pictures of the teacher. 

Detectives said their investigation into the complaint revealed that the male student had obtained Gordon's cellphone while at lunch at the school on Friday, May 13, and had brought the phone with him to a restroom. Police said that while in the restroom, the student went through Gordon's photographs that were on the phone and had observed several pictures showing her undressed. The student then returned the phone to Gordon.

Police said that after lunch the 15-year-old returned to his class that Gordon was teaching and she again allowed him to view the photographs. Gordon also exchanged phone numbers with the student, according to investigators.   

Following her Sept. 21 arrest on the aforementioned charge, Gordon was released on $1,500 unsecured bail.
