SC students start petition to support teacher that resigned over nude photos

UNION, S.C. (AP) – Some Union County High School students have started an online petition to bring back a teacher who recently resigned after a student spread a nude picture of her through text messages and social media. Teacher Leigh Anne Arthur tells media outlets she left her cellphone on her desk Monday as she monitored a hallway during a class change. A 16-year-old boy then took her phone, and with his own phone took pictures of nude images of Arthur on her phone. A group of students started an online petition in support of Arthur. Wednesday afternoon, the petition had 1,300 signatures. Superintendent David Eubanks says Arthur was in the wrong because the phone was unlocked. He says he’s unsure if the student will face disciplinary action.

Arthur says she forgives the student, but she believes he should be held responsible for his actions.
