Teacher sues district after student spread nude photos
COLUMBIA, S.C. - A South Carolina teacher who resigned after a student spread nude pictures of her through text messages and social media has sued her former employer, saying she wants her dignity back after being forced to quit.
Attorneys for Leigh Anne Arthur sued the Union County school district Friday for breach of contract and slander. She is seeking unspecified damages for her lost income, lost opportunities and harm to her reputation.
Arthur told The Associated Press she's been struggling emotionally since a student went through her cellphone and found photos taken as a Valentine's Day gift to her husband. The student has been charged with a computer crime and voyeurism.
Arthur is not seeking her job back.
She says she's not sure how many students and parents saw the photos.
