Teacher’s Aide Arrested For Photos Sent To Student

TITUSVILLE, Florida – A teacher’s aide was arrested on a warrant following an investigation by Titusville Detectives that began when a parent notified police.

27-year-old Lindsey Noele Thorson of Titusville, Florida turned herself into Brevard County Jail late Friday, February 21, 2020, after a warrant was issued for her arrest for transmission of materials harmful to minors and tampering with evidence.

Investigators say that a 16-year-old student of Fieldston Preparatory School on Columbia Boulevard in Titusville had explicit photos on his cell phone that were sent to him by a teacher’s aid at the school.

A faculty member was notified of the allegations by the student, but it was a parent that came forward to report the incidents to the police.

“This case provides an important reminder that school officials, by law, are mandatory reporters of suspected abuse, regardless of whether they believe the allegations or not,” said lead Detective Jessica Cabrera.

Thorson was booked into Brevard County Jail.
