LaMantia and the student first met at school and exchanged phone numbers before Thanksgiving, the release said. The two began texting, and LaMantia sent pictures of her genitalia to the student through the Snapchat phone application between Nov. 29 and 30, the release said. The app allows photos to be viewed from 1 to 10 seconds before they are deleted.
