    I think the hubby should be teaching that young moron a lesson. anyways par for the course for schools more interested in sticking it to the victim than the freaking perpetrators.

    Because stealing someone's phone and going through their personal effects isn't delinquent in it's own right. No, we must think of the children and their virgin eyes! My god have we really sunk this low as a society?

    Contributing to the delinquency of a minor has to be a willing act for it to stick. There's no "should've done more to protect children from themselves" to it. You have to actively egg them on to do something they wouldn't otherwise do without your direct assistance.

    Simply leaving her unpassworded phone on her desk for some opportunistic kid to grab doesn't pass muster.

    I didn't see it mentioned that the teacher has already lost her job over this.

    EDIT
    Ok found it in the article.
    Prolly should be mentioned in the post though.

    she messed up IMHO, could have been over embarrassment because the kids have her nudes or there is more to the story.

    She is an idiot for not having a password on her phone especially with those kinds of pictures on there. I'm on the fence about if that is a dumb enough thing to do to make her deserve to lose her job, but it definitely shouldn't lead to criminal charges (The one exception that I would make would be if an investigation showed that she left the phone unlocked intentionally for the kid to go through and get the pictures without it looking like she gave them to him). The kid possibly should face charges, or at least disciplinary action from the school though.

    Someone can be fired for a jackass stealing something from them?

    Seriously?

    People are going to jail for revenge porn but this punk can steal and distribute naked pics of his teacher.

    VERY unwise of the teacher to bring a nude pic of herself into the classroom (and make no mistake, that's exactly what she did).

    If it's a criminal offense to bring nude pics into the classroom in your briefcase, or purse, or whatever, then this should be treated the same way. Either way, I believe being terminated/asked to resign is entirely appropriate here.

    And yes, the kid who got into her phone was also wrong; he should be expelled, IMO.

    So if the door was unlocked at her home and the kid walked in and found some Polaroids in a shoebox of her T&A and brought them to school to show kids this same thing would of happened? There has to be more to the story or she needs a good lawyer.

    So the teacher is going to be able to retire in a year or so on the SC governments dime.

    She also brought the recipe for sarin gas and the instructions for making a nuclear bomb. We should ban the Internet too.
    [if there was an emoji for eye roll it would go here]
    She brought her phone. Her phone which is not subject to search or seizure without warrant.
    If the school has a no phone policy that would be different but it doesn't (or I assume we would have heard about it.)
    Your argument is ridiculous.

    The fact she brought them in on her smartphone without any password protection certainly shows a lack of forethought on her part, but I don't think she should take any punitive measures taken against her.

    For one, smartphones all but accumulate everything we do in our lives these, and we carry it around with us wherever we go. What she does after hours will inevitably end up on hers, and I don't think she should be held to a different standard just because she's a teacher.

    Should she have been more careful? Certainly. But she's already paying the price for that one lapse of judgement.

    For two, it wasn't like she was handing out nudie pictures in her classroom alongside the math worksheets. One of her kids had resort to theft to gain access to them.

    No, she wasn't too wise, but I don't think she should lose her job over it.

    Then you can argue anyone with a smart phone and a data plan can have nude photos on their phone. Open up browser and go to porn.com. look nude pictures!!

    The location of the phone is completely irrelevant. What if the teacher left the phone home but the kid hacked her iCloud account like they did with Fappergate?
    The kid committed a crime -- end of story.
    The method he used doesn't make the teacher any less of a victim.

    I must have missed that part in the OP. People ought not be bringing inappropriate materials into a classroom full of kids.

    Well-reasoned, but I do take exception to the "inevitably" part, and the "because she's a teacher" part isn't really relevant.

    I use my (personal) phone for work, and I receive a stipend for it (I had the option of receiving a company phone, but I got tired of carrying two of them around). I keep inappropriate things off of it, mostly because that's a part of life that, in my opinion, doesn't need to be intermingled with my professional life. Notably, I don't work with or around children.

    As for "because she's a teacher," as far as I'm concerned NOBODY should bring nude pictures into a classroom, teacher or otherwise.

    To me, it's more of a "should've known better" issue, while to you, it's more a "shouldn't have done that, period" situation. It's not that big of a deal because she didn't allow it personally, and it's not like she even accidentally exposed these kids to something they haven't already seen 15,000 sets of already by that point in their lives.

    I'll agree, it's not very professional, and in a perfect world, she would've had the forethought to prevent it from ever happening. But more harm was done to her reputation and standing than to any young, bourgeoning teenage minds.

    That's not what happened though, the woman brought her phone into school, with pictures, unprotected. She didn't back her mobile home into the cafeteria containing the box of Polaroids, swing the door open, and walk away.

    The argument I would have any cell phone with Internet access can access pornographic sites. In that sense, every parent of a <18 year old boy with Internet access or a smartphone would or should be arrested on this charge.

    This issue I see the school having is she brought naked pictures of herself into school. They would have easily fired her as well if she posted the pictures online. It's a grey area but honestly there is no way this lady can go on being an effective teacher in her district given this snafu. I don't believe in criminal charges though. That's ridiculous.

    Then again this is SC, known for conservatism and a woman taking naked pictures of herself is "not very christain". Or the cops/prosecutors just wanted to see the pictures!

    In my day cell phones weren't allowed in class, let alone SCHOOL (at least visibly). Maybe teachers should follow their own suggestions :p

    So some brat clearly invades the privacy of an adult, and this thread says it's the teachers fault for having a sex life? Got it.

    Un-****ing-belivable.

    Stuff like this why I currently live in a foreign country...and don't have desire to return to the US that is all that strong.

    Some people don't lock their phone. Its a personal choice really. My wife doesn't. She likes swipe and use. I lock mine.

    waiting for cases of a kid commits grand theft auto with a 6 pack of beer in the car and the car owner charged with serving a minor next.

    rest of this...guessing woman in question is young and either single with a love interest or newly married and still in newlywed mode (article doesn't say as I read it). Not seeing an issue with her choice of pics. I never caught the whole old, married with kid prude bit.

    But I don't have that selective memory issue many get when they get older. roll that clock back a few years and I am sure a few prudes aren't the people they are now. But that's me, I recall quite clearly we weren't always mommy and daddy. Texts were just a bit more interesting many years ago. And pics sent were more intriguing than shots of items I sometimes screw up when I get the "can you pick this up on the way home lists" (I can't read Japanese very well...pictures help get the right stuff at the local stores as I have the non-cooking male gene too so like I would know what she uses in the kitchen lol).
