Report: Sexual texts, photos led to teacher's arrest

LAS VEGAS - Sexually explicit photos and texts on a student's cellphone led to the arrest of a math teacher from West Career and Technical Academy last month, according to her arrest report.

Renee Rine, 36, was arrested Jan. 26 after Clark County School District Police viewed a student's phone and saw the photos and texts from Rine to the student.

The report said, the student told police, he had Rine as a teacher two years earlier when he was 15 and she would stare at him in class and had touched his bicep and chest, which made him feel uncomfortable.

The following school year, he did give Rine his phone number and the two began texting. According to the report, the teen said, Rine did tell him she was having inappropriate thoughts and feelings for him and then she began sending him nude pictures through SnapChat.

The report said, the teen was shocked by her photos and he said, he never sent any photos to her in return. Also, when she wanted to meet at places, including a hotel room, he never went.

He told police, he didn't speak up sooner because she was a well-liked teacher and he didn't want her to get into trouble, but the relationship was inappropriate.

Rine is facing charges of attempted kidnapping for trying to lure the student to a hotel, child abuse, lewdness with a minor, sexual misconduct and unlawful contact with a minor.

Rine was hired by the district in Aug. 2015.
