Laughlin also sent him explicit video and asked him to come to her home and have sex with her while her husband was away, it has been claimed.

The mum-of-one, who worked at a high school in Missouri, even kissed him in a classroom.

According to reports the teen, who has not been named, told cops that she first approached him on picture based social media site Snapchat.

He told them that Laughlin had sent him nude pictures and video where she used a dildo, before asking for images from him in return.

She then reportedly asked him to delete the sexually explicit content out of fear of getting into legal trouble, or of people finding out.

While he did delete some of them, he apparently showed several others to the police.

Cops allegedly found footage on her phone like the student described after he said “things progressed fast”, according to The Riverfront Times.

Laughlin now faces charges of possession of child porn, tampering with a victim, attempted statutory rape, sexual exploitation of a minor, and sexual trafficking of a child.

She has also been accused of tampering with physical evidence and one misdemeanour count of distributing pornographic materials to a minor, and could face up to 20 years in prison.

The boy apparently made excuses not to meet with her “because he did not feel comfortable”.

Laughlin reportedly told the police that the teen made contact first but did not deny the relationship.

She claimed: “I was not aware he was a minor until yesterday.”

The school district Superintendent Tim Webster said: “The District takes these matters seriously and reported allegations to appropriate outside agencies, including law enforcement.

“We have been actively cooperating with these agencies since the initial report.”

She has been suspended from her workplace at St. James High School.

Laughlin’s bail has been set at just over £80,000 as she is set to appear in court in November.

It comes after a former teacher in Iowa was charged with sexually abusing at least three of her students, each aged between 13 and 14.

Cassidy Sue Kraus, 24, was accused of sending the children x-rated Snapchats and committing heinous sex acts against them.
