Washington state science teacher, 45, allegedly sent explicit Snapchat messages to teen girl, cops say

A Washington state high school teacher was reportedly charged with two counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes last week.

Timothy Brennan, 45, a science teacher at Kentwood High School, allegedly sent naked photos and videos of himself through Snapchat to a 14-year-old girl, Q13 Fox reported, citing charging documents.

The girl said she was contacted by someone she did not know when she entered Kentwood High School as a freshman and assumed the person was just another student, according to the station.

The girl reportedly began to receive explicit pictures and videos from the person, and when she asked who the other person was, the sender said he could not tell her because it would “mess up his marriage and his job.”

The explicit photos and videos were still being received into the girl's sophomore year, Q13 Fox reported. The girl said she saw Brennan wearing a jacket she recognized in one of the messages and after more research, the girl said she realized it was Brennan who was sending her the pictures, station reported.

The girl said she confronted Brennan about the messages and he stopped contacting her for about a month after the confrontation, Q13 Fox reported.

However, Brennan continued to message her and allegedly asked her to have sex with him in his office. The girl also alleges that he showed up at her work.

The girl reported the incidents to the school in November. Brennan was placed on administrative leave after the accusations were reported, according to Q13 Fox.

The Kent School District told the station that Brennan is still on leave.
