Police: Fairfax County School Aide Sent Lewd Photos to Student

011516 Morrice Stephenson

A man who works as a school bus aide is accused of sending lewd photographs of himself to a teenager at an Fairfax County school for students with special needs.

Morrice Stephenson, 24, was arrested Friday after a 16-year-old girl reported he sent her inappropriate photos, Fairfax County police said.

Administrators at Quander Road School called police shortly after noon Wednesday when the student reported the incident. The student said she received at least two inappropriate photos from the bus aide in November and December, police said. 

Detectives arrested and charged Stephenson, of Alexandria, with two felony counts of soliciting a minor using a communication device. He is being held without bond at the Fairfax County jail.

Stephenson and the minor are acquaintances, police said.

Bus aides are school employees who help students and ensure safety during bus rides.
