TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — An Ohio teacher is in hot water after her sex tape was sent to some 200 students at her high school, Cleveland.com reported.
The teacher works at Ginn Academy, a public high school for boys located in Cleveland.
According to the newspaper, the video was stored on the teacher’s phone and shared with students who have iPhones via AirDrop, a feature that allows users to share and receive photos wirelessly. It is unclear exactly what was shown.
The director filed a police report and detectives from the Cleveland Police Sex Crimes Unit began investigating, local news station WKYC reported.
According to the report, the teacher admitted to having the video on her personal phone, but said she was not the only one sharing it. She is currently not being considered a suspect, according to media reports.
“If someone were to gain access to an unattended phone, it’s pretty easy to capture someone’s password,” said Alex Hamerstone, a cybersecurity expert at WKYC. “If someone has bad intentions, the first thing they will do when they get access to your phone is to look at your photos, see if you have a private folder and see what’s in it, or looking at text messages and trying to find anything inappropriate.
A spokesperson for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District said the teacher has been suspended and will not work with students until the investigation is complete.
