Teacher accused of sending nude photo to student

Posted: Updated:

NORTHAMPTON (AP) — A part-time dance teacher at a South Hadley performing arts charter school is facing charges for allegedly sending a nude photo of himself to a 17-year-old student.

Daniel Lozada of Easthampton pleaded not guilty Monday in Northampton District Court to a charge of disseminating obscene material to a minor.

Authorities say the 33-year-old Lozada, a teacher at the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School, also sent several sexually suggestive text messages to the girl last month.

The prosecutor said the girl claimed Lozada had been making sexually charged comments about her appearance that made her uncomfortable.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit.ly/SNkgPo ) reports that Lozada's attorney said the girl sent a nude photo of herself to Lozada first. Prosecutors say there is no evidence to support that.
