Las Vegas teacher busted for sex, romance with 15-year-old middle school student

Tanikka Queen, 22, was booked into Clark County, Nev., jail Wednesday on counts including se*ual assault against a child younger than 16, statutory se*ual seduction, se*ual act with a pupil and first-degree kidnapping.

A substi*ute teacher allegedly developed a se*ual relationship with a 15-year-old eighth grader at Hyde Park Middle School in Las Vegas.

Tanikka Queen, 22, confessed to having se* with the student; they exchanged hundreds of texts professing never-ending love, police said.

“Basically she’s looking at se* related charges with a minor … se*ual seduction, luring, kidnapping,” Clark County School District Police Capt. Ken Young told the Daily News. “These charges are pending.”

In February, police were tipped off to a possible relationship between Queen and the student. Detectives uncovered troubling texts that were “pretty much very romantic” rather than se*ual, according to Young.

Awwww you’re making me blush. Why do you have to be young? Lol I wanna tell the world. When you turn 16?” the suspect texted leading up to Valentine’s Day, according to an arrest report

Queen was booked into Clark County Detention Center on Wednesday, authorities said. A judge ruled that if the suspect paid $100,000 bail, she would be under house arrest and must not have any contact with minors, the local Fox affiliate reported.

Melinda Malone Clark County School District spokesperson told The News that Queen is no longer in their substi*ute pool or on their substi*ute call-list.
“Parents have been informed and a letter was sent to them. A new sub has already been introduced to replace this substi*ute,” Malone said. Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crim…#ixzz2vzLNjErS
