Amarillo, Texas - The Amarillo elementary school teacher accused of sending explicit text messages to a 15-year-old boy is now facing a felony charge.

34-year-old Julie Ann Moore is charged with one count of sexual assault of a child for having sex with the Amarillo High School boy.

If convicted, the Sanborn Elementary School teacher faces up to twenty years behind bars and a ten-thousand dollar fine.

The criminal complaint against her alleges she called the boy during half time at an Amarillo High football game in October. He met her in the Dick Bivins parking lot.

From there she reportedly drove them to the back of a nearby apartment or hotel where they engaged in sexual activities.

The complaint goes on to say she drove him back to the stadium before the third quarter began.

She's currently out on a $7500 bond, but she's not allowed to be around anyone younger than 17, except her own children.
