New details have emerged in the case of Marisa Anton, a former high school librarian in New Rochelle, N.Y., who pleaded guilty in January to endangering the welfare of a child after a police sting operation caught her looking for sex at a student's house last May.

As reported by CBS New York last year, the 33-year-old New Rochelle High School librarian exchanged sexually charged texts and emails with a 16-year-old male student for months before she was arrested.

However, police documents recently obtained by The Journal News' LoHud.com revealed startling details of encounters between Anton and the underage student. It now appears the police sting that busted the librarian wasn't the first time she had attempted to lure the student into sexual intercourse.

In one such encounter, Anton arranged to meet the minor at his house, then pushed him on a bed and began to pull down his pants. The student told police he refused because he was "nervous" and claimed Anton later sent him photos of her breasts and requested to meet again.

In the police report, the student said that he'd initially "wanted to see how far [he] could take" his flirting with Anton, but that things got increasingly intense. He said he'd felt threatened when Anton discussed sexually "slaughtering" him.

According to the New York Daily News, Anton is expected to be sentenced to three years probation later in February.

Although media outlets like the New York Daily News flaunted the sexual nature of Anton's misconduct, branding her a "naughty" librarian who "bombarded" the student with explicit photos and requests for intercourse, a police spokesman told Talk of the Sound, a New Rochelle, N.Y., blog, that "no sexual conduct occurred" between them.

However, Anton did try to cover her tracks. The student told police that she urged him to delete their correspondence, and that she sent him a link to a news story about a teacher who was arrested for having sex with a student.

According to NBC New York, Anton had worked in the school district since 2008, passed background checks and had no prior criminal record.

The Daily Freeman reported in June 2012 that Anton was initially charged with disseminating indecent material to a minor, a felony that could have resulted in a 7-year prison sentence.
