A former staff member at Hamburg High School has been arrested for allegedly having sexual contact with a 15-year-old student in a classroom at the school. 34-year-old Krista A. Stump faces charges of institutional sexual assault and unlawful contact with a minor.
Stump allegedly sent the student texts and nude photos through a mobile app for three weeks before allegedly sexually abusing him on campus.
Detectives began investigating Stump after authorities were notified through Childline of alleged inappropriate contact between a Hamburg High School employee and student.
Detectives with the district attorney’s office spoke with the student and he told them that Stump had “come onto” him in a classroom at the school and asked him to add her to his Snapchat account.
The student agreed to add Stump and says she started sending him “weird” and “sexual” text messages, along with nude photos of herself. She then allegedly had indecent contact with the student inside of a classroom while they were alone.
This is the second recent case of a Hamburg High School employee allegedly sexually abusing a student. In July 2019, former teacher Holly A. Smith was sentenced to prison for having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old male student.
