KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — A Kennewick teenager has been accused of soliciting his former teacher for sex by sending her explicit Facebook messages.

The Tri-City Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1PwfvWZ ) that the now-14-year-old boy is accused of sending naked pictures and videos of himself to the Kennewick middle school teacher through Facebook. Prosecutors say he sent 15 graphic messages over several months.

The boy was 13 at the time. Court documents say he used his first name and sent a picture showing his face in some of the messages.

The teen has pleaded not guilty in juvenile court to cyberstalking and child pornography charges.

The teacher says she rarely checks Facebook and was shocked to discover the messages in late 2015. She contacted police and said she hadn't watched the videos.
