A Kanawha County middle school teacher and former Miss Kentucky has been charged with sending nude pictures to a juvenile male student.
Ramsey Bearse, 28, a teacher at Andrew Jackson Middle School, has been charged with four counts of the distribution and display to a minor of obscene matter.
According to a criminal complaint, the student’s parent informed authorities Wednesday of lewd pictures found on the student’s phone, sent by Bearse.
The parent, not identified in the complaint, said Bearse was a teacher during some of the time that his or her son attended Andrew Jackson.
On Thursday, Bearse admitted to investigators sending the student at least four photographs of her “nude breast/chest area” through Snapchat, a photo messaging phone app, from around August 2018 to October 2018, according to the complaint.
Briana Warner, communications director for Kanawha County Schools, declined to comment, but confirmed that Bearse was a teacher at Andrew Jackson.
