Pueblo Police: Teacher 'sexting' and kissing a student was not criminal

PUEBLO, Colo. - A former South High School teacher didn't commit a crime when she kissed and sexted with a student, Pueblo Police say, but she did violate the school board's policies, KRDO-TV reported.

The TV station said police found cell phone pictures last month that Larisa Oringdulph sent to several male students of her in her underwear. She also told police that she kissed a 17-year-old student outside a gym.

Police investigated. They said investigators found she committed no crime.

A defense attorney told KRDO that the photo "does not qualify under the definition of sexual exploitation of a child."

As for her job, the school board's policy states "Staff may not communicate with students through personal social media platforms or by texting without prior authorization from an administrator."

However, Oringdulph was not fired, because she had already resigned.

District 60 and Oringdulph declined to comment.
