ORLANDO, Fla. – A 21-year-old female karate instructor from Florida is accused of soliciting an 11-year-old boy for sex.
Orlando police told news outlets Stephannie Figueroa was arrested last week after the child's mother told officers she saw messages from the karate instructor on his cellphone.
A police report said the boy and Figueroa were using the messaging app Kik. The boy told investigators that Figueroa had been flirting with him and sent him nude pictures.
Investigators said in the report that Figueroa and the boy last communicated on June 14, when she invited him to her 21st birthday party when no one would be home. The report says Figueroa told the boy she wanted to have sex with him.
Figueroa was released from jail. Records don't say whether she has a lawyer.
