SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

A 37-year-old teacher in the Van Buren Township School District stood silent as she was arraigned on charges of distributing sexually explicit material to a minor.

Andrea Deanna Brennan of Ypsilanti appeared in a Wayne County court Tuesday morning. The court entered a not guilty plea for her. She also faces charges of using a computer to commit a crime and providing a minor with alcohol.

The prosecutor's office says officers allegedly found Brennan with a 15-year-old male in a parked car near Beck and Ayres in Van Buren Township around 1:30 a.m. on July 10.

Brennan is accused of giving that teen alcohol and using a computer to send him sexually explicit material.

We're told he has never been one of Brennan's students.

Distributing sexually explicit material to a minor is a two year felony.  Use of a computer to commit a crime is a four year felony, and furnishing alcohol to a minor is a 60 day misdemeanor.

Brennan was released on a $10,000  personal recognizance bond and told she could not have any contact with her alleged victim.

She is expected back in court for a preliminary exam on August 6.

Statement from Van Buren Public Schools:
There have been charges of impropriety against an adult who teaches in the district. We are cooperating with criminal authorities to obtain the facts and information regarding these charges. Van Buren schools will take all appropriate steps to determine the future employment status of this individual to ensure the utmost protection of our students.
- Michael Van Tassell, Superintendent of Schools

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD."
