CITRUS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A substitute teacher accused of sending nudes to students at Citrus High School and performing oral sex on a 15-year-old has been arrested, authorities said. 

Angela Jean Stanton, 50, of Inverness, is charged with one count of Felony Lewd and Lascivious Battery and one count of Felony Transmitting Harmful Materials to a Minor, according to an arrest report.

The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by school officials after the principal learned of possible inappropriate activity between Stanton and a minor.

Detectives responded to the school and interviewed three possible victims. During the interviews, they were informed Stanton had sent several nude photographs of herself to students through the Snapchat mobile app.  Detectives also learned Stanton had allegedly performed oral sex on one of the juveniles, who was 15-years-old at the time.

When questioned, investigators said Stanton gave them several statements that “corroborated the specific details given by the victims.”

She was arrested and booked into the county jail, where she is being held on a $12,000 bond. 

“Stanton was a trusted community member who was heavily involved in activities working with our county’s youth. She used her position to prey on the vulnerability of our children,” said Sheriff Prendergast. “No parent should ever have to worry about their child being victimized like this; especially from someone they viewed as a mentor. We will continue to work with the Citrus County School Board to determine if there are any additional victims.”

If you believe your child was a victim of Stanton, please contact Special Victims Unit Sergeant Stephen Conley at (352) 249-2718 or email sconley@sheriffcitrus.org.
