Police have arrested a Napa High School substitute teacher on suspicion of sending sexually explicit text messages and photos to a 15-year-old male student last year. Linda Antanina Vass, 41, of Napa, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly annoying or molesting a child under age 18, sending harmful matter with intent to seduce a minor, and contacting a minor with intent to commit sexual offenses, Napa police said. Vass and the boy began exchanging text messages on their cell phones last year, and the messages eventually became more personal in nature, police said. On Oct. 14 and Oct. 15 of this year, Vass exchanged sexually explicit text messages and photos with the boy, Cmdr. Jeff Troendly said. The boy’s family became aware of the text messages shortly after Oct. 15 and notified police, Troendly said. Police investigated the incidents and got an arrest warrant. Vass was booked into the Napa County jail. The Napa Valley Unified School District said Vass is no longer working as a substitute teacher.
