Lewd IM's

Teacher arrested for allegedly inappropriate Internet contact with student

An eighth-grade teacher at a Livermore private school has been arrested after allegedly having inappropriate Internet conversations with one of her male students.

Our Savior Lutheran School teacher Rebecca Rogers, 24, of San Ramon, was arrested April 17 at the Livermore police department on suspicion of contacting or communicating with a minor for purpose of engaging in certain lewd and lascivious behavior, according to police. She was booked at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin and has been since released on bail.

The Alameda County District Attorney's Office has not yet filed charges, but Rogers has a tentative court date Monday in Alameda County Superior Court in Pleasanton.

Livermore police have been going through Rogers' computer and trying to figure out the extent of the communications, said Lt. Scott Trudeau.

"It's hard to tell," Trudeau said. "We're going through all of the computer evidence (to find out) when it started and how it started and who might have been the one who initiated it."

Trudeau said he did not want to comment on whether there was physical relationship.

The school's staff called police April 17 after the parents of a student found instant messages of a sexual nature, according to police.

Im throwing this quote in for Trench:

At this point we're not going to comment on that," Trudeau said. "We're encouraging people to review what they're kids have been doing" on the Internet.
