An Oklahoma substitute teacher was arrested Thursday for her inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old student, then released on bond shortly after, The New York Post reported.
In October of 2022, Emma “Delaney” Hancock of Wellston, Oklahoma began her pedophilic relationship with a student she met while working as a substitute teacher. Several weeks after she texted the Wellston Public Schools student to ask for a copy of a school assignment, they began exchanging nude photos and videos. According to court documents, Hancock is also accused of kissing and groping the minor when the two secretly met in classroom closets.
Though how the inappropriate relationship was discovered remains unclear, the sexual abuse was reported to the school district some time in November, and the child sexual predator was terminated from her position and banned from the high school campus.
Nearly 5 months later, Hancock was finally arrested and charged with two counts of soliciting sexual conduct or communication with minor by use of technology and two counts of lewd or indecent acts to child under 16. She was later released on a $50,000 bond. Due to the pedophile being the daughter of Mayor Paul E. Whitnah and wife to Chief of Police Alfred Hancock, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.
