Hilton-Hecht asked the student to go to her house with her to smoke marijuana during class time, according to arrest warrants obtained by the The Sun News through an Open Records request.

While in class and doing TikTok dances, the substitute grabbed the victim by the waist and told the minor she loved him before grabbing her breasts with both hands and placing them on the student’s chest, according to the warrants. Other students were in the room at the time of the incident.

The student is under the age of 16, according to police. There is one known victim.

The text messages included several vulgar words.
