Ellarea Silva Bio, Wiki
Ellarea Silva is a 34-year-old Louisiana middle school Science teacher at Northwestern Middle School in Zachary who is accused of having sex multiple times with a 15-year-old student at her home — while her own child was also in the residence. She was placed on administrative leave on Jan. 24th, 2020.
How did the Louisiana Teacher Start her Sexual Relationship with the Teen
Silva initially sent the teen an email to his school account before the pair started communicating using their personal addresses “so the school could not track” their correspondence, a detective wrote. She then sent the teen nude photos and videos of herself, intentionally keeping her face out of the revealing snaps and footage, an arrest report states.
The teacher would later start picking up the teen at his home in Zachary and returning to her residence, where they had sex. Silva is also accused of giving the boy a pink e-cigarette vaping device that may have contained THC, authorities said.
At one point, the teen told Silva he wanted to go public with their relationship, but the educator begged him to reconsider, WBRZ reports.
“[Silva] asked the victim not to disclose [the relationship] due to how his disclosure would affect her career and her family,” an arrest report reads.
Ellarea Silva Arrest
Silva surrendered to cops Thursday, Feb. 6th, after allegations surfaced that she had sex with the teen eight or nine times last summer at her home, where her child was also present during each encounter, according to an arrest report obtained by WAFB. Police learned of the allegations on Jan. 24th, the same day Silva was placed on leave.
Silva was busted after a joint investigation by Zachary police and the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, school officials said in a statement.
“Immediately, when it was brought to our attention, we reported it to law enforcement and placed the employee on administrative leave,” Zachary Schools Superintendent Scott Devillier told WAFB in a statement. “No one is covering up anything, nor sweeping anything under the rug. We are following the law, and I am unable to comment beyond this information.”
Ellarea Silva Charges
Silva is facing charges including indecent behavior with a juvenile, felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and oral sexual battery. Silva is currently being held in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a bond of $225,000.
Police are now asking parents of other students who may have had contact with Silva to report any concerns to authorities.
‘Detectives are requesting that parents of students who may have had contact with Silva talk to their children about their interactions with her and contact ZPD detectives at 225-654-9393 if they believe their child was victimized,’ the Zachary Police Chief said.
