A North Carolina middle school teacher has been arrested for sending lewd pictures and videos of herself to at least two former students.
According to The New York Daily News, Caron Blanton, 34, turned herself in to authorities Tuesday after it was discovered she had been sending obscene photos and videos of herself to at least two former students over the course of two years.
Blanton was a science teacher at Burns Middle School. The inappropriate messages began when the unidentified minors were her students and the messages continued into their high school years.
When another person saw the videos or pictures on one of the students’ phones, officials at Burns High school were alerted.
"There's no question in our mind who is in the video. Who made the video. We know exactly who was in the video," Captain Joel Shores of the Cleveland County Sheriff’s office said, according to WSOC-TV.
Blanton has been charged with three counts of indecent liberties with a child under 16 and six counts of disseminating obscene material to a minor.
She is currently out on bail.
