UNION COUNTY, South Carolina – A high school teacher in South Carolina has resigned after a student allegedly stole personal pictures from her cell phone.

According to WSPA, Leigh Anne Arthur had taken a few photos for her husband for Valentine’s Day. She was partially nude in the photos and had accidentally left them saved on her phone.

One day in class, she left her phone on her desk while she was out of the room for a moment.

“He opened up my gallery for my pictures and he found inappropriate pictures of myself and he took pictures from his cell phone of that and then he told the whole class that he would send them to whoever wanted them,” says Arthur.

Arthur says the student warned her before sending the photos out.

The school said they were concerned she would be contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

“The whole premise of my privacy being invaded his being ignored and that’s what’s wrong,” said Arthur.

She said to her knowledge, the student has not been punished. She added that she plans on pressing charges.
