A private Christian school teacher in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, has been accused of sexually assaulting an eighth-grade student, per the NY Post

The alleged perpetrator, Tyesha Bolden, 34, reportedly had an inappropriate relationship with the boy, which included exchanging over 2,200 text messages, some of which contained explicit content. Bolden has been released on a $2,500 bond after being charged with second-degree child sex assault and providing a dangerous weapon to a child.

According to police, in June, Bolden took the boy to a wooded park, where the assault is said to have occurred. The victim later revealed that he asked Bolden to buy him a Glock 19 handgun, as he felt the need for protection. Shockingly, Bolden not only purchased the gun and ammunition but also gifted it to the teenager for his 14th birthday, along with some books.

The situation came to light when the victim’s parents discovered inappropriate photos, including a topless selfie of Bolden, on their son’s phone. In July, the teen asked Bolden for money and another gun, but she only provided the money. Shortly after, the victim went missing, and it was suspected that he might be staying at Bolden’s residence. Police located him in possession of the same gun his teacher had bought him.

Upon learning of the allegations against Bolden, the school promptly fired her. 

If convicted, she could face up to 40 years in prison.
