Stephannie Figueroa, a 21-year-old karate teacher, was arrested in Orlando, Fla. last Wednesday for allegedly sending nude photos of herself to an 11-year-old student who attended her class at Next-Gen Xtreme Martial Arts, according to police documents sent to Complex. Figueroa has also been accused of telling the boy that she wanted to have sex with him.
According to the police documents, the boy's mother discovered the alleged photos sent by Figueroa on her son's phone on the morning of June 15. She also found a message that featured Figueroa telling the boy she was looking forward to the next sleepover event at the karate school so she could have sex with him "in a hard way." Additionally, the documents allege that the 11-year-old told his mother that Figueroa had been flirting with him for months.
Further, the police documents indicate that Figueroa allegedly touched the young student's thigh once while telling him she wanted to touch his genitals. She reportedly stopped after the boy asked her to.
Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV 9 is also reporting that when Figueroa messaged the boy and allegedly wrote, "I want to have sex with you," the boy responded, "OK IDC."
The phrase "OK IDC" was briefly trending on Twitter on Wednesday morning with some Twitter users making light of the alleged crime committed against a minor:
Others didn't find the boy's response funny and called out the double standards at play that suggest boys can't be the victims of sex crimes:
Next-Gen Xtreme Martial Arts responded to a Facebook inquiry from Complex on Wednesday morning with this brief statement:
