A former Cincinnati school teacher is facing a criminal charge for allegedly hampering an investigation into a theft and nude photo.
Jaime Climie, of Lynn Avenue in West Chester Twp., was charged Jan. 16 with obstructing official business, a second-degree misdemeanor.
On Nov. 24, West Chester Police were called to Climie’s home in the 9000 block of Lynn Avenue on a report of a theft. At that time Climie claimed she could not locate her cell phone and she reported someone had posted a nude photograph of her without her permission on the Internet, according to police. That photo was taken on the phone reported stolen.
Through the investigation, it was discovered Climie had been untruthful. Police said Climie later admitted she had sent the photograph of herself to someone other than whom she originally claimed, according to police.
Climie resigned from her teaching position at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy on Snider Road in December after the nude photo was discovered online.
The nude photo was discovered on a revenge porn website, where hackers, ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends often post inappropriate photos, along with personal information about the person. Next, the embarrassing photos can be forwarded to family, friends and colleagues, according to our news partners at WCPO.
The photo was posted to the website Nov 23. Climie filed the theft report the next day.
Climie was arraigned Friday in Butler County Area III Court after turning herself in to police. She was released on her own recognizance and is scheduled to be back in court Feb. 4.
