ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Authorities have arrested a karate instructor they say solicited an 11-year-old boy for sex.

Orlando police tell news outlets that authorities arrested 21-year-old Stephannie Figueroa last week on charges including attempted lewd or lascivious conduct, solicitation of a minor via computer and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police say the boy’s mother contacted officials after finding inappropriate text messages including nude images from Figueroa on her son’s phone.

Figueroa was booked at Orange County Jail. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
