The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A for­mer Miss Ken­tucky who is a teacher in West Virginia has been charged with send­ing nude pic­tures to a 15-year-old for­mer stu­dent.

News out­lets re­port that 28year-old Ram­sey Bearse was ar­rested Fri­day and charged with four felony counts of dis­tribut­ing or dis­play­ing ob­scene mat­ter to a mi­nor.

A crim­i­nal com­plaint says the stu­dent’s par­ent in­formed au­thor­i­ties of lewd pic­tures sent by Bearse that were found on the teenager’s phone. The uniden­ti­fied par­ent said Bearse had been the boy’s teacher dur­ing part of his time at Andrew Jack­son Mid­dle School in Cross Lanes.

Au­thor­i­ties say Bearse ad­mit­ted to send­ing the nude pho­tos on Snapchat. It’s un­clear whether she has an at­tor­ney.

A spokesman for Kanawha County Schools de­clined to com­ment but con­firmed that Bearse was a teacher at the school.

Un­der her maiden name of Car­pen­ter, Bearse was crowned Miss Ken­tucky in 2014.
