Teacher Charged With Felony For Sending Nudes To Student

Kelsie Schmidt was charged with a felony for sending naked pictures to at least one student on Snapchat

Beulah, ND – A 24-year-old teacher has been arrested and accused of sending nude photos of herself to a 17-year-old student.

Kelsie Schmidt was charged Tuesday with a felony of luring minors by computer or other means, according to the Bismarck Tribune.

A police report said that a Mercer County Sheriff’s Department detective went to Beulah High School on Friday to investigate whether a teacher had been sending nude photos to male high school students via Snapchat, the Bismarck Tribune reported.

The police detective interviewed a 17-year-old male student who said that “he could get the math teacher in trouble for pictures that she had sent him,” a police affidavit stated.

The student said that he had received three or four naked photos on Snapchat from Schmidt in August and September.

The student said the photos were of the teacher from the waist up and her hair partially covering her breasts, according to the Bismarck Tribune.

Another photo was of a person’s legs that had the message, “Get a group and play naked hide and seek.”

Schmidt admitted to the police detective that she had sent the photos of herself nude to the student, according to the Bismarck Tribune.

Schmidt was placed on administrative leave as the school district conducts its own investigation, according to Beulah Public School District Superintendent Travis Jordan.

Schmidt is in her first year of teaching at the high school, according to Jordan. The superintendent would not say how many students were involved in the investigation.

"This is a very unfortunate situation for everyone, but certainly it's a very serious allegation and we are treating it very seriously," said Tom Dickson, the attorney for Schmidt, according to the Bismarck Tribune.

Schmidt’s bond was set at 10 percent of $10,000 according to court records.

I can't believe a teacher would do such a thing. I'll need to see the photos before convicting this girl.

Why are these women doing this? Were they not popular in school and are craving attention? Why not just go to a bar and get it there.....legally?

I think this is happening more and more is because this generation doesn’t mature until 35. So a 17yearold and a 24yearold have the same immaturity. Just my opinion of course. No facts to base this on.

This has become an epidemic. These millenial female teachers must figure the laws don't to them. Of course growing up being told they can do anything they want probably has something to do with it. Sad!

What does this have to do with Blue Lives Matter? Now that’s out of the way, why did I have old grouchy teachers when I was growing up!? And why would this kid even be saying he could get her in trouble? Was he failing her class? Does he not like girls? Maybe he got ahold of the pics from someone and jealous because he wasn’t or isn’t included in the group? I think What I’m trying to say is, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Some kids will never learn...... haha. Ok on a serious note, these people, female or male, have serious problems. Of course it would look so much worse if it were a male teacher and female student, but would the penalties be the same........ I wonder.

Well, Here's some history for you. I graduated from high school class of '71. In those days relationships between students and teachers were not an issue. Daily flirting that included open touching and smooching were the norm. Gay, straight, and in between, teachers on teachers, students on students, teachers on students did not raise an eyebrow. Before the PC police and strident feminists took over schools, life was allowed to proceed without hindrance. Senior students both male and female married teachers. Teachers married each other. All this going on with a quality education to boot. Where do people learn how to relate to each other these days?, where is the joy of life?
