Rebecca Mason Cales an Idaho, Mountain View High school teacher is arrested after having six sexual trysts with a 17 year male student and sending the boy graphic images of herself.
Rebecca Mason Cales a 26 year old German and history teacher from a southwest Idaho high school has been arrested after allegedly having no less than six sexual interludes with a teen male student along with sending the 17 year old graphic lewd images of herself.
Upon her arrest on Tuesday, the married teacher was booked on half a dozen felony sexual battery counts of a minor child reported the Idaho-Statesman.
The teacher was taken into custody at Ada County Jail pending $20, 000 bail.
The woman’s arrest follows West Ada School District officials saying they received an anonymous email concerning the relationship between the married Mountain View High School teacher and a student. School officials immediately contacted the Meridian Police Department.
According to a press release from the police, investigators were able to determine that the suspected sexual relationship between Mason-Cales and the teenager began in August 2017.
Prosecutors further revealed during Mason-Cales’ arraignment on Wednesday that the German language and history teacher allegedly had sexual encounters with the student at least six times in September and November, and continued sending the boy ‘graphic images’ until as recently as this Monday.
Police do not believe there are any other victims in this case.
Rebecca Mason Cales: ‘The nice things my students say always really tug at my heart strings and remind me why I love teaching so much.’
Mason-Cales graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelor’s degree in German and secondary education, with a minor in history. She has been teaching at Mountain View High for two years.
Her Facebook relationship status indicates the female teacher getting married in July 2015 after dating her boyfriend for at least seven years.
Of intrigue, Mason-Cales posted a wedding photo on her Facebook page. The husband’s Facebook page notes him living in Denver, Colorado.
A 2014 Facebook post revealed the teacher/tutor posting, ‘Finals are exhausting and I shamelessly take selfies.’
Adding, ‘The nice things my students say always really tug at my heart strings and remind me why I love teaching so much. I’m pretty lucky to have such great kids. 😊”
It remained unclear what led to the teacher abusing her position of trust, authority and position of power to sexually prey and subjugate her male victim. A common and unrelenting trend among female teachers and their male students.
Mason-Cales is scheduled to make her next court appearance, March 7.
