Students: Teacher would talk about porn in classroom

Police interviews were released and reveal what was really going on inside Kara Loofborough's 8th grade science classroom at Fees Prep College Middle School in Tempe.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Talk of porn, viewing of inappropriate videos and sharing of links to adult content are what some students claim happened inside 26-year-old Kara Loofborough's classroom at Fees College Preparatory Middle School. 

Newly released Tempe police body camera video and documents provide details into the investigation launched after a 13-year-old student came forward accusing Loofborough of engaging him in sexually explicit conversations. 

"Is there anything else or conversations that took place?" asks a police officer in video blurred to protect the identities of students.
 
"I don't want to repeat some stuff because it's just nasty," replied the student. 
 
Multiple students were interviewed during the investigation and provided varying pieces of information. Several confirmed they had contact via social media or text message with Loofborough outside of school hours. 
 
The allegations against Loofborough stem from March where the woman allegedly engaged in sexually graphic conversations with a male student who claims she exposed herself during a Facebook video chat. 
 
"You said that there was some photos back and forth?" an officer asks a student.
 
"(The victim) came and took the phone before we can see anything else," the student replies. 
 
 According to documents, Loofborough told police she was "not thinking straight" and expressed remorse over her actions, but couldn't provide an explanation for why she participated in explicit conversations with her student, even showing him her private parts.
