Louisiana teacher accused of sending nude photo to student on Snapchat
NEW ORLEANS - A New Orleans-area teacher was reportedly arrested after she sent a nude photo to a 13-year-old student.
According to a report from the New Orleans Advocate, 30-year-old Viridiana Figueroa-Ramos was booked on a count of indecent behavior with a juvenile on Nov. 17. She is listed as a teacher at L.W. Ruppel Academy for Advanced Studies in Jefferson Parish.
A Jefferson Parish School System spokesperson told the Advocate that Figueroa-Ramos also teaches at four additional schools — Fisher Middle-High; McDonough 26 Elementary; Leo Kerner Elementary; and Terrytown Elementary.
Figueroa-Ramos is suspended without pay as an internal investigation is conducted. Parents of students at all five schools are in the process of being notified, however there is no evidence to suggest that any other students were sent lewd images at this time.
She was booked by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office and later released on a $5,000 bond.
