Franklin Regional Teacher’s Text Messages Probed

By David Highfield

MURRYSVILLE (KDKA) — Police are investigating whether a high school teacher in the Franklin Regional School District sent inappropriate text messages to students.

A district spokesperson will not say whether the teacher is male or female, but did say the teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave.

“Appropriate authorities have been notified and district policy is being followed,” wrote Shelley Shaneyfelt, the district’s public relations representative. “We are fully cooperating with the local police department.”

In a statement, the district referred to “a” student, but a police statement refers to more than one student receiving the texts.

Police would not reveal details of the texts.

No charges have been filed.

    View on a television program:

    1. People can text messages as though the texts are coming from other cell phones.
    2. One can possibly text another phone by logging onto the cell phone companies’ websites.

    You are completely WRONG! When internals (binary code) of a phone or computer are checked (part of any investigation involving cell phones or computers) it ALWAYS 100% ends at the phone/computer orginating the text/message. You can do the superficial malware, hacking into accounts, or novice approach but you can’t get around the internals. Sorry, you fail.
