According to a letter sent by the Tempe Elementary School District to parents and guardians of kids attending the school, Loofborough had been a seventh-grade science teacher in district since August of 2016.Officials with the school district said Loofborough resigned from her position at the beginning of May.The father told investigators that he called Loofborough to address the issue.“According to the father, the teacher apologized for the contact as well as asked for him not to contact local law enforcement,” the arresting officer wrote.“She stated she wanted to talk further with him about the incident(s).”Police said that during a forensic interview, the teen admitted that Loofborough exposed herself while on a video chat with him last month.
Trooper Mitch Jergenson, 46, stopped a car driven by a man whose passenger was a 17-year-old girl he had gotten to know via Facebook and other social media. Scott Reutter, 47, who watches the motels near the Phoenix intersection of I-17 and I-10, where prostitutes are active, approached a young girl talking to an older man. Reutter, whose daughters are 22 and 19, thought she was “14, maybe 15.” She had been a runaway for 17 months, since she was 13, and said that if she were returned to the custody of child services she would run again. Large and laconic, he is the 54-year-old son of a Phoenix cop and, although he spent some time doing stand-up comedy, he knows in the marrow of his bones that “there are so many people out there who want to take advantage of other people.” It is unclear how many victims of DMST there are because for many reasons the crime is not often reported by its victims.
The community notification process in Arizona is triggered by a sex offender's release from jail/prison or sentence to probation.
When this occurs, the respective county adult probation agency or Arizona Department of Corrections (DOC) is required to enter information about the offender into a statewide accessible database.
She also, according to what the teen told police, asked the boy to send her a picture of his penis. According to court paperwork, the victim said that while at school one day, Loofborough showed him a cell phone video of herself performing oral sex on an unidentified man. Police said she admitted to showing her genitalia to the boy and that she was aware that he was only 13.
She also allegedly admitted to touching herself while he watched via video chatting on Facebook Messenger.
