Amanda Lenea Pardue, is a 35-year-old Georgia substitute teacher. She’s the latest teacher to be caught in a s*x scandal with teenage boys that she was teaching. Police are accusing Amanda of sending naked pictures to several teenage boys.
Amanda turned herself into the Dade County Jail without incident on Thursday and was charged with electronically furnishing obscene material to minors and computer or electronic pornography and child exploitation, which is a felony.
Authorities did not release the details of Pardue’s messages with the boys or how she got hold of their numbers.
Pardue’s attorney, Larry Stagg, said the problem had begun when she was included in a group text with multiple boys.
The GBI began looking into the case at the request of Trenton (Georgia) Police Department Chief Christy Smith on Aug. 31. They obtained a search warrant for Pardue’s phone soon after.
The GBI has released almost no other information about the case. Special Agent in Charge Greg Ramey declined to discuss what preceded the messages between Pardue and the boys, what kind of “inappropriate” content she had shared, how she communicated with the boys or how they got each other’s phone numbers.
Dade County Schools Superintendent Jan Harris said the district fired Pardue as soon as administrators learned of the allegations. According to the Dade Planet, a local news website, the Board of Education hired her in September 2016.
Pardue’s attorney, Larry Stagg, said Thursday night he still had not heard the GBI’s specific allegations. He said Pardue told him that the problems began when she was included in a group text with multiple boys. Based on what his client told him, he believes the GBI is targeting communications between Pardue and the boys on Snapchat.
