Family of resigned teacher ponders legal action

CINCINNATI -- A teacher has resigned after school officials said a nude photo of her spread online.

A spokesperson for Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy said the female teacher resigned Monday.

"We respect this decision and are thankful for this teacher’s ministry while here at CHCA," said CHCA's Marketing Communications Director, Jennifer Murphy, in a release. "All faculty, staff, board members and parents have been formally notified. We continue to work together to ensure that we have minimal disruption here at the school, remaining focused on fulfilling the mission of CHCA and continuing to be a best in class educational institution."

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. "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.

The photo was posted to the website on November 23. The woman made a claim on November 24 that her iPhone 4S had been stolen.

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.

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