According to the Advocate, a teacher from Gretna was arrested earlier this month by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office for allegedly sending naked photos of herself to a student while on the social media platform Snapchat.

The teacher, identified as Viridiana Figueroa-Ramos, 30 of Marerro, was arrested on November 17, the same day allegations were made against her. She was booked on one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Figueroa-Ramos, according to the Advocate, was a band teacher at L.W. Ruppel Academy for Advanced Studies in Gretna. She also taught at four other schools in Jefferson Parish.

An internal investigation is being conducted on the incident and Figueroa-Ramos was suspended without pay.

JPSO told the Advocate that the arrest stemmed from rumors that a teacher was sending nude photos to a student. The school's principal identified the 13-year-old student who received the photos from Figueroa-Ramos.

The Advocate reports that there was no indication from deputies on whether the images had been recovered or if Ramos had admitted to sending them.

She was released on a $5,000 bond.
