Ex-Miss Kentucky charged with sending nude photos to student
A former Miss Kentucky who is a teacher in West Virginia has been charged with sending nude pictures to a 15-year-old former student.
News outlets report that 28-year-old Ramsey Bearse was arrested Friday and charged with four felony counts of distributing or displaying obscene matter to a minor.
A criminal complaint says the student's parent informed authorities of lewd pictures sent by Bearse that were found on the teenager's phone.
The unidentified parent said Bearse had been the boy's teacher during part of his time at Andrew Jackson Middle School in Cross Lanes.
Authorities say Bearse admitted to sending the nude photos on Snapchat. It's unclear whether she has an attorney.
A spokesman for Kanawha County Schools declined to comment but confirmed that Bearse was a teacher at the school.
Under her maiden name of Carpenter, Bearse was crowned Miss Kentucky in 2014.
Ohio teacher disciplined for algebra lesson
about sexting "nudes"
An Ohio math teacher trying to helping students solve for x was disciplined for an XXX-themed algebra question.
A student in Daniel Rapp's ninth-grade class in Middleburg Heights outside Cleveland took a photo of the teacher trying to spice up his lesson with a sexting-related quandary.
"Tony can send 5 texts and 3 nudes in 19 minutes. He could also send 3 texts and 1 nude in 9 minutes. How long would it take him to send one test and one nude?" the question asked.
Daniel Blair, the father of two 14-year-old students, told WJW that he was "appalled" by the question, adding that he filed a formal complaint.
The Berea City Schools superintendent told the station that Rapp, who had a previous reprimand for inappropriate comments, was given a reprimand but will remain in the classroom.
The answer to Rapp's original problem is that it takes Tony five minutes to send one text and one nude, or two minutes for each text and one minute for each nude.
