Arrest Warrant Issued For Putnam City Teacher Accused Of Sexting Student
PUTNAM CITY, Oklahoma - An arrest warrant has been issued for a middle school teacher accused of sexting with a student.
Oklahoma City Police were alerted to the inappropriate relationship by the alleged victim's parents.
Whitney Fetters, 28, a Spanish Teacher at Hefner Middle School is now accused of exchanging nude photos and videos with a 14 year old.
According to court records, the two began texting when the alleged victim was twelve and a student in her class. Investigators said by the time the alleged victim went off to high school the texts were sexual in nature.
Warrants show the victim sent the first explicit message. In the message, he allegedly told Fetters that he thought she was "hot" and he sent her a partially nude photo of himself.
Investigators said the two then exchanged at least 20 nude images, videos of themselves performing sex acts, and snap chats.
Fetters is also accused of inviting the victim to stay the night with her and engage in sexual intercourse, but authorities were made aware of the situation before that happened.
"The parents wanted to report that the son had been receiving pictures from Fetters," Oklahoma City Police MSgt. Gary Knight said they filed a report on Jan. 31.
When the victim was confronted about the alleged relationship, the warrant shows he attempted to delete all of the explicit images and video off his phone including a new application called "SNAP SAVE" -- an app used to save photos that should be automatically deleted from Snapchat.
Investigators were able to review and collect all of the images as evidence.
During a search of Fetters' home, investigators also seized her cell phone, computers and undergarments to match to the photos found on the victims IPad.
"Anytime you are talking about sexual misconduct, that's certainly something we take very seriously," Knight said. "When you talk about it being perpetrated upon a child, certainly that makes it a more alarming type situation."
At last check, Fetters has not been arrested. As for her teaching status, a spokesperson with Putnam City School District would only say Fetters has not been at the school since allegations surfaced.
News 9 spoke with Whitney Fetters' attorney Mack Martin. Martin said he and the family decline to comment on the situation.
