Ohio teacher at private Christian school on leave after nude photos leak on revenge porn site

CINCINNATI - A teacher is on administrative leave after school officials said a nude photo of her spread online.

A spokesperson for Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy said the female science teacher was put on leave Tuesday and the "matter is being investigated."

"We have an employee who appears in some photos that have been compromised and made digitally available," the spokesperson said.

A parent of a student at the private Christian university-preparatory school said she and other parents are upset after learning about the nude photo. The school serves children from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade.

"The woman is already a victim," the parent, who asked to remain anonymous, told WCPO, our Scripps sister station in Cincinnati . "But this being a Christian school, parents are upset that a teacher is even taking naked pictures and sending them to people -- and...her students are old enough to get online and Google their teacher's name and the photos come up."

The nude photo was discovered on a revenge porn website, where hackers, ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends often post inappropriate photos, along with personal information about the person. Next, the embarrassing photos can be forwarded to family, friends and colleagues.

A spokesperson for the school on Snider Road said no other details on the case will be released "out of respect for her family's privacy and due to the sensitive nature of the circumstances."

WCPO reporter Amy Wadas talked to the teacher's husband. He said they aren't sure how the teacher's photos got online to begin with. Together, they are working with local authorities to handle the matter.

Tuesday evening, spokeswoman Jennifer Murphy said, "The school is currently addressing the situation with faculty, staff, students and parents."

For the sake of the teacher's privacy, WCPO chose not to report her name.
