Police arrested Ramsey Bearse, a 28-year-old teacher, and former Miss Kentucky beauty queen. The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office charged her for sexting photos of herself to a 15-year-old student. According to the Sheriff’s Facebook Page, she faces four counts of distributing obscene materials to a minor.
The claims arise from the child’s parents who found the photos on his phone. Since the accusation, Bearse has been suspended from her teaching position and was released on a $10,000 property bond.
CNN reports that Ramsey Bearse was an ex-beauty contestant. Competing under the name Ramsey Carpenter, she won the Miss Kentucky title in 2014 and won the talent part of the Miss America competition for her fiddle performance.
Since no court ruling has been made, the sheriff’s office asserts the teacher is still innocent until proven guilty.
