Michelle Smith White a North Carolina high school teacher has been charged with having sex with a 16 year old female student after she was found out with a tattoo of the teenager’s name on her body.
Court documents would tell the 27 year old teacher came to be outed after tattooing the girl’s name and initials on her body.
According to WRAL-TV the teacher met the alleged victim while working as a dance teacher at a local high school in Durham, North Carolina, in 2012, when the girl was just 15 years old, and the friendship later evolved into a sexual one.
White worked at Charles E. Jordan High School, where the alleged victim was a student, from 1997 until April 2014.
Upon leaving the school, White was asked by the teen’s parents to stop communicating with their daughter, but the pair were caught exchanging sexually charged text messages in May.
Tellingly the texts included the word ‘threesome’ and ‘alluded to the involvement of Michelle Smith White’s husband,’ according to an affidavit by the Durham County Sheriff’s Office.
The affidavit backed an application for a warrant to search White’s home, computers and phones.
White would consequentially be ordered to show a tattoo which depicted an ‘artist rendering which would be symbolic of the juvenile’ as well as the teen’s name and initials.
Police have also asked to seize several framed photos of White with the alleged victim, a handwritten card, and a binder filled with notes from White’s husband to the teenager.
White taught dance for grades 9 through 12 at the school from 1997 until she resigned in April, according to WNCN.
White has since been charged with taking indecent liberties with a student and engaging in a sex offense with a student and is now scheduled to appear in court Nov. 5.
