A former Belton ISD substitute teacher was indicted after she sent nude images of herself to a 15-year-old student on Wednesday. 

Rachele Patino, 39, turned herself in after officials say she had inappropriate contact with a minor through social media platform Snapchat. 

According to an arrest affidavit, Patino began talking to the minor through Instagram and Snapchat. The victim told officials that Patino began the conversation with a basic conversation such as age and grade, but then progressed into sending nude images of herself and requesting them from the victim. 

Patino also offered to pick up the victim, according to the affidavit. 

Patino admitted to officials that she had talked with the victim and had sent them pictures of herself. 

She told officials that she knew the victim was underage and that what she had done was wrong. 

Patino's last day as a substitute for Belton ISD was in February.
