District: Teacher's nude photo stolen by student, spread through school

UNION COUNTY (WYFF) - A teacher at Union County High School has resigned after a student spread a nude picture of her through text messages and social media, according to Union County School District interim superintendent David Eubanks.

Eubanks said a student got hold of Leigh Anne Arthur's phone and took a picture of a nude picture that was on her phone.

He said the student then sent the picture out through text messaging and social media.

The incident happened on Monday and Arthur resigned on Tuesday, Eubanks said.

Eubanks said Arthur was in the wrong because her phone was unlocked and she made the nude picture available to her students.

Arthur said she took the picture to give to her husband.

She said the student took the phone from her desk while she was patrolling the halls.

She feels the student should be held responsible for his actions.

Arthur said he knows right from wrong, "He had the ultimate decision to take pictures of my pictures and he had the ultimate decision to send them out."

She said, "He had to hit my apps button and to open up all my apps and then open my gallery."

The Union County Sheriff's Office is now investigating. Eubanks said the office will determine whether the student is charged.
