Police arrest teacher they say sent inappropriate pictures to student
ST. PETERSBURG - An Azalea Middle School teacher was arrested Saturday night on charges that she sent pornographic pictures to a 14-year-old boy.
Police say Christy Lynn Martin, 32 of 3457 Lynn Lake Drive South, C, (pictured left) used a cell phone to exchange naked pictures with the boy last weekend.
The teen, an eighth grader who is not being identified, also told investigators he and the teacher had a relationship.
“My understanding is he is not one of her current students, but may have been one in the past,” said police spokesman Bill Proffitt.
Martin sent photos of herself on Feb. 28 and March 1, an arrest affidavit says. The next day, the teen sent an image of himself back, the report says.
Police began their investigation early Saturday, after the after the boy told an adult relative about his relationship with Martin.
The relative told the boy’s mother, who in turn notified authorities.
By Saturday afternoon, detectives had tracked down Martin. She admitted to sending the pictures, police said.
The investigation is in its early stages, Proffitt said, and details are limited because of the boy’s age.
Martin worked as a teacher assistant at the school before becoming full time in fall 2008, police said.
The school’s Web site lists her as a computer business applications and life choices teacher.
Efforts to reach school district officials were unsuccessful Saturday night.
Martin was booked into the Pinellas County Jail shortly before 6 p.m. on charges of transmitting pornographic images through an electronic device and transmitting material harmful to a minor.
She is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail."This isn't who they are. It is only what happened to them."

She must be ready for what she is about to encounter.
I cant believe how stupid some people are.
I hope the schools crack down on all and any person working with Children who is not taking care of the Children respectfully, and professionally. Let them all rot in jail.Women are Angels.
And when someone breaks our wings,
we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.
We're flexible like that.
