A special education teacher is facing criminal charges after she allegedly shared nude photos with a student who passed the pictures around the school.
Megan Clough, 29, of Susquehanna, Pa., was charged on Friday with institutional sexual assault, WNEP reported.
The charge applies when the victim is older than 18, but still a student.
Clough, a special education teacher at Mountain View High School, reportedly sent five or six nude images of herself via Snapchat to at least one student.
While Snapchatmessages disappear after being viewed, these images were saved and shared around the school, reports say.
One picture of Cloughwas reportedly captioned “How is this something you want to see?”
Clough reportedly later admitted to police that she had sex with a student in her home in March, saying “I guess I had feelings for him.”
Students told media that the teacher’s relationship with a student was an open secret in the school.
A parent reported the relationship to authorities, at which point the principal referred the case to the state police department.
Clough is reportedly free on bail.
