Bixby was once a rural farming community about 30 minutes' drive from central Tulsa. It is now a massive bedroom community which annexed every bit of unincorporated land to the south of Tulsa city limits.
The school used to have a thriving FFA club which dominated the social activities outside the classroom studies. Now the school is a major force in 6A football.
Today law enforcement is prosecuting a young female teacher on attempted statutory rape of a young male student. But this isn't the biggest sex scandal in the school's first semester.
Anna Ruth Lewis, 22, communicated with the student through social media apps, including Instagram and Snapchat, Bixby police said. “The messages included communications about attempting to meet the minor child for oral and physical sex acts,” Officer Jerry Francis states in an affidavit.
The student reportedly told police that Lewis had messaged him through social media. Lewis later sent the student a nude photograph of herself after the student “liked” a photograph of her on Instagram, police said.
“The victim admitted he sent Lewis nude photos after receiving nude photos from Lewis,” Francis states in the affidavit. “The victim reported Lewis asked for the photos.”
Lewis reportedly told investigators that she was “going through a lot and had been drinking a lot,” Francis wrote.
What might have been a hazing incident eventually became a felony sex crime. It happened at the superintendent's home during a team party. Remember, failing to promptly report sex crimes against children to the police is a crime which has resulted in jail time, in recent cases.
