Details in the child seduction case against former Bedford North Lawrence High School employee Nathan Woodward emerged today after the Information and Probable Cause Affidavit documents (see below) in the case were acquired.

Detective Jeff Deckard of the Indiana State Police, in his Affidavit for Probable Cause, found that “Woodward, while employed by Bedford North Lawrence Community School Corporation as a Teacher and Coach, engaged in child seduction with a female student, A.D., who at the time was at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age”, a Class D Felony.

“A.D. admitted that she had exchanged sexually explicit text messages with Nathan Woodward.  A.D. further admitted that during this same time frame, October and November 2008, she engaged in sexual contact with Nathan Woodward [on] more than one occasion and at least one time in his classroom during a school lunch period.”

“The classroom number is 3090 … of Bedford North Lawrence High School”.

“The sexual fondling and touching was described by the victim, A.D., as Nathan Woodward touching the area of her breasts and/or vagina.”

Woodward obviously knew that what he was doing was inappropriate:  “A.D. has received electronic text and voice messages from Nathan A. Woodward wherein he had advised her to respond to questions about their inappropriate relationship by responding that they were only involved in sports [and] other appropriate school activities.”

A warrant for Woodward’s arrest for a Class D Felony charge of Child Seduction was issued today by Judge William G. Sleva.
