WEST CHESTER, Ohio -- A former Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy teacher who resigned when nude photos of herself surfaced on the Internet is in trouble with police after she lied to investigators about her cellphone being stolen.
West Chester police say Jamie Climie lied to them Nov. 24 when she said someone stole her iPhone 4S from her home at 9019 Lynn Avenue. She told investigators her phone housed personal nude photographs that she'd only sent to her husband.
The previous day, Nov. 23, several nude photos were discovered on a revenge porn website, where hackers, ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends often post inappropriate photos, along with personal information about the person.
Climie resigned from her teaching position at CHCA on Nov. 30. At that time WCPO spoke to the teacher's husband, who said he and his wife weren't sure how the pictures got online. He said they were working with local authorities to handle the matter.
However, through a forensic investigation that included cellphone records and IP address backtracking, West Chester police were able to determine Climie had sent at least one of the photos to someone other than her husband, according to a press release from the police department.
Investigators say Climie has since come forward and admitted she lied. Her phone was never stolen.
On Jan. 16, Climie was charged with obstructing official business, a misdemeanor of the second degree.
She turned herself in to the West Chester Police Department on Jan. 21, was arraigned the same day and later released on her own recognizance.
Her next court date is at 8 a.m. on Feb. 4.
