New Charges for Female Teacher's Aide Accused of Sexting/Sexing Students
It's alleged female pedophile Friday here in the Valley, and all the buzz about Susan Brock getting hit with a 13-year prison sentence for having a three-year sexual relationship with a teen shouldn't steal the spotlight from another Valley woman who apparently has a thing for kids.
Last month, Gabriela Compton, a teacher's aide at Western Valley Middle School, was arrested for an allegedly inappropriate sexual relationship with at least two of her students. She's also accused of sending naked pictures of herself to several teenage male students, which were circulated throughout the school.
Compton was initially charged with two counts of sexual abuse, four counts of sexual conduct with a minor, and one count of furnishing obscene materials to minors. But a a grand jury has upped the ante by htting Compton with additional charges.
Compton now faces three counts of sexual abuse, three counts sexual conduct with a minor, and one count of furnishing obscene or harmful items to minors.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, principals at the school found out Compton had been sending students nude photos of herself and called police. Over the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Compton had engaged in sex with at least one student, and felt up another.
Compton, court docs state, exchanged cell phone numbers with a 14-year-old male student in late February. The student asked Compton to send him a picture of herself, which she did -- the photo, however, was of her topless. In exchange, the student sent her a picture of a penis
he found on the Internet.
After exchanging sexts, Compton picked up the boy and some of his friends to drive them home. When the other students had been dropped off, Compton and the victim had sex in the back of her van as it sat parked in an industrial park near 67th Avenue and Van Buren Road.
Police discovered that the 14-year-old student wasn't Compton's only victim. A 13-year-old student also admitted to having a sexual relationship with Compton.
That student told police that he and Compton also had exchanged cell-phone numbers and began sending each other sexual photos. The student told police that he and the other victim showed each other the photos of their naked teacher's aide.
In on such sext, Compton told the boy that she wanted to "rub his cock." He replied by telling the teacher's aide that he wanted to grab her breasts.
Compton apparently picked up the boy at a Burger King and took him to two different malls, where she bought him a pair of shoes and two shirts. While driving to the mall, the boy grabbed Compton's breasts -- and she smiled.
Compton asked the boy if he wanted to have sex, and told him that they could do it "for his birthday," which was coming up.
The photos, police say, circulated at the school and were seen by several students.
During a confrontation call with a female student who had seen the photos, Compton admitted to sending the photos to several students and to having sex with the 14-year-old.
She continued to spill her guts when she talked to detectives -- they say she she admitted everything.
When told that what she did was illegal, Compton told cops "ya, I know."
