DERRY, N.H.—A New Hampshire high school English teacher charged with e-mailing nude photos of herself to a 15-year-old male student has decided to waive her arraignment.

Forty-one-year-old Melinda Dennehy of Hampstead had been due to appear Tuesday in Derry District Court on a felony charge of indecent exposure and lewdness.

A boy who told police her received photographs from Dennehy also said she sent him text messages offering to have sex, and that she kissed him on the mouth in a classroom at least twice in recent months.

Dennehy turned herself in and has been placed on administrative leave from her job at Londonderry High School.

Dennehy is next due back in court April 26 for a probable cause hearing.
