CLEVELAND (WJW) – The FOX 8 I-Team has uncovered an investigation into a sex video sent from the phone of a teacher to hundreds of local students.

There are so many questions about the video and how it got out to all of those kids.

Now, the Cleveland Police Sex Crimes Unit is investigating and the teacher has been taken out of the classroom and placed on leave.

The case centers around a teacher at Ginn Academy on the Cleveland’s northeast side.

Police confirm the case involved “inappropriate video” on a teacher’s phone sent to as many as 200 students.

Multiple law enforcement sources say it involves some kind of sex tape.

The Cleveland Metropolitan School District issued a statement saying, in part, “The teacher has been removed from the building and is not working with students pending the outcome of an investigation.”

That teacher is now on paid leave.

We also caught up with the teacher’s union.

Union President Shari Obrenski said, “I can’t comment on a specific case. I can say we do have contractual processes in place to protect students and our district and our members when there are cases of accusations being made against a member.”

At the heart of this, investigators are trying to figure out how that video got sent out and how it ended up in the hands of so many students.

An initial police summary mentioned a function many of you have on your smart phones. It’s a function to send video to one person or a lot with just one tap.

We also spoke to Ken Trump, a Cleveland parent who also runs a school safety consulting firm, National School Safety and Security Services.

He said, “As a parent, it’s appalling. It makes you feel like you have a punch in the gut, especially when you’re an authority figure and you’re a role model around children,” he said. “It doesn’t matter how the video was shared. It shouldn’t have been there and accessible to kids in any form in the first place.”

Ginn Academy is named after Ted Ginn. He has spent decades coaching and working with inner-city kids. He didn’t want to comment.

No charges have been filed and no disciplinary action has been taken by the school system.

The investigation is still in its early stages.

It took days of phone calls and records requests for the I-Team to uncover what we know so far. We are doing some more digging.
