(Scroll down for video) School officials in South Carolina, forced a teacher to resign after her nude photo was shared among students.
Leigh Anne Arthur, a teacher at the Union County High School, was forced to resign after a student stole the nude picture from her phone before sharing it with other students.
Union County School District interim superintendent David Eubanks said that the photo was shared on Monday, and Arthur resigned the following day.
Eubanks believes that Arthur was responsible for the incident because her phone was unlocked, allowing the student to access her nude photo.
Arthur defended herself, saying that she took the photo to share it with her husband. She said that the student took the phone from her desk while she was outside of the classroom for patrols.
The Union County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident, and will determine whether to file charges against the boy who stole and shared the nude photo of his teacher.
