A FOR­MER beauty queen who is now a teacher faces jail af­ter be­ing charged with send­ing pic­tures of her nude TEATS to a 15-year-old boy.

Mar­ried Ram­sey Bearse, 28, was ar­rested and charged with four counts of dis­tribut­ing or dis­play­ing ob­scene mat­ter to a mi­nor.

The for­mer Miss Ken­tucky was busted by cops af­ter her nude pic­tures were found on the 15-year-old for­mer stu­dent’s phone.

The snaps were dis­cov­ered by the teenager’s mother ear­lier this month.

Po­lice say Bearse con­fessed to send­ing pho­tos of her naked breasts to the teenager from Au­gust 2018 to Oc­to­ber 2018.

They are not sure if there are more un­der­age vic­tims in­volved.

Bearse is an eighth-grade science teacher and the vic­tim was a for­mer stu­dent.

Kanawha County Schools in West Vir­ginia re­leased a state­ment in the wake of her ar­rest.

“Mrs Bearse is a teacher at An­drew Jack­son Mid­dle School. We can­not com­ment on per­sonal mat­ters, but we will fol­low all ap­pli­ca­ble poli­cies and pro­ce­dures,” the state­ment said, adding: “The safety and se­cu­rity of our stu­dents is our top pri­or­ity.”

When she was ar­raigned in Kanawha County Mag­is­trate Court, Bearse said: “I have no com­ment to make to you all at this time.”

Her lawyer has said that she would post the re­quested £7,500 bond.

If con­victed of her charges, she could face up to 20 years in prison and £75,000 in fines.

Bearse was crowned Miss Ken­tucky in 2014 un­der her maiden name Car­pen­ter.

From there she com­peted for the Miss Amer­ica ti­tle in 2015, where she fin­ished in the top 12.

In the com­pe­ti­tion, her tal­ent was play­ing the fid­dle.

Since her ar­rest, Bearse has deleted all of her so­cial me­dia.
