Former Miss Kentucky, 28, arrested for sending nude photos to teen boy
A former Miss Kentucky beauty queen has been arrested for allegedly sending nude photos to 15-year-old boy on Snapchat.
Ramsey BethAnn Bearse, 28, was arrested after the boy’s parent’s are said to have found the illicit images of their son’s 28-year-old former teacher on his phone.
Married Bearse, who was Miss Kentucky 2014, admitted to cops that she sent four photos via Snapchat, according to police.
The former model became a teacher at Andrew Jackson Middle School near Charleston, West Virginia but has since been suspended from the role.
Bearse won the Miss Kentucky crown by wowing judges with her fiddle act and her battle with multiple sclerosis.
She told Lexington-Herald Leader:
“I just want to help people understand the disease.”
Bearse was arrested on Friday in West Virginia and charged with four felony counts of distributing or displaying obscene matter to a minor.
She now faces a fine of nearly £80,000 and a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
A spokesman for Kanawha County Schools declined to comment but confirmed that Bearse was a teacher at the school.
