She is presently being accused of creating obscene or filthy words or photographs, as well as making indecent propositions or actions to a child under the age of 16, soliciting sexual activity or communication with a child through the use of technology, and soliciting s*xual activity or communication with a child via the use of technology.

“According to the affidavit, Hancock filled in at Wellston whenever he was needed. And a minor began using Snapchat to send and receive text messages during the month of October “OSBI representative Gerald Davidson stated. The sexually suggestive character of the SMS messages ultimately prevailed as the exchanges continued.

According to the records submitted to the court, the 26-year-old began contacting the student during the autumn semester of 2022, when she was serving as a replacement for one of his courses. In addition, the records state that their romantic connection progressed to a more sexual one during the first week of November.

Why is 26-year-old Oklahoma teacher Emma Hancock facing sexual charges?

An affidavit obtained by News 9 states that Emma Hancock initiated communication with a student at Wellston Public Schools when, in October 2022, she sent him a message asking for a school project. Later on that day, she initiated a conversation with the youngster over Snapchat by sending him a friend request. According to the New York Post, the youngster is believed to have sent a photo of himself without a shirt to the instructor, and in response, she stated:

“Are we sending half naked pictures now?” The youngster’s response was: “I don’t know, are we?” Emma Hancock responded to this by saying: “Are you trying to get me to lose my job?” As her interactions with the student became public knowledge, Emma Hancock was told she was no longer welcome on school grounds.

According to the records that were filed in court, there was another student who was aware of what was going on between Hancock and the 15-year-old. She confirmed that it was accurate after being questioned about it. More than one additional student was aware of the conversation between the two parties on Snapchat. Officials at Wellston Public Schools issued a statement in which they claimed, “As soon as the district became aware of the allegations, the replacement was promptly removed from our call list and was not permitted to return to campus.”

“In addition, the local, county, and state (OSBI) law enforcement officers were promptly alerted by the district as soon as it was discovered. Over the course of the OSBI’s investigation, the district cooperated when requested to do so.” Officials from the school district said that Hancock has not been permitted to enter the school since the autumn of 2022. It was not known as of the morning of Friday whether or not Hancock had been brought into the jail.
