Nude pic from teacher’s phone spread through school says district

UNION, SC (WSPA) —  A teacher at the Union Co. Career & Technology Center, in South Carolina,  has resigned after a nude photo of her was spread through the school says the Interim Superintendent for the school district.

The district says Leigh Anne Arthur, had nude photos of herself on her phone, and that a student took her phone while she was out of the room and took pictures of her picture.

The student then shared the photo throughout the school.

The district became of aware of the incident last Monday, and she resigned on Tuesday, according to the district.

Arthur reached out to 7News after seeing this article and told us her side of the story.

She says she the week of Valentines, she had some pictures in the gallery on her cell phone that were intended for her husband.

She said she left her cell phone on her desk to go out and be a hall monitor between classes.

In that time, 5 minutes, a student went and took pictures of her phone from his phone and shared them “with anyone in class who wanted them”.

She said the kid then said at the end of class “your day of reckoning is coming.”

Later, she was told what had happened, and checked with the student’s parents who she said were 100% on her side.

The kid went to principal and admitted it and two witnesses also went to the principal.

She says the principal asked for her resignation the next Tuesday.

She says the district told her there was no policy about “inappropriate material on her cell phone” but they were firing her for that reason.

She was also in trouble for “making her phone easily accessible,” according the Arthur.

She made a police report and the students phone is now in possession of Union County Sheriff’s Office. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
