A female teacher at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy in Ohio has been placed on administrative leave after school officials found a nude photograph of her on a “revenge porn” site.

“Revenge porn” sites publish photographs stolen by hackers or posted by malicious ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends, along with identifying information about the person. In this case, the photograph of the teacher — who is not named — was posted on the site on November 23, the day before she reported her iPhone stolen.

A spokesman from the schoool said “we have an employee who appears in some photos that have been compromised and made digitally available,” but he did not indicate how the photographs were first discovered, or whether any of her students had seen them.

A parent of one of her students told WCPO that while “the woman is already a victim,” because this is “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.”

In October, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed a law outlawing some forms of “revenge porn.” It would not cover the photographs in this case, however, as it does not include a ban on photographs taken by the subject him- or herself.

Watch the WCPO report on the incident below.
