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.
