Teacher said she never saw nude pictures online

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

"The kids were able to upload them but we never found them. We went to try to look them up but we never found them," said Lekeshia Jones.

Jones denies being nude in photos despite what school officials said during a school board hearing on Wednesday. Jones was fired for violating school policy by not keeping her personal belongings locked away and for having inappropriate pictures on her cell phone.

"One of the students came to me because she was kind of concerned and she said ‘Ms. Jones, I think there are some pictures of you floating around of you' and I said ‘no that's impossible,'" she said.

Jones said it all started after school one day in February, she was helping some 8th grade girls put up a bulletin board in the hallway, and a couple of the girls went inside her classroom for school supplies.

Jones noticed they were taking awhile but didn't think anything of it at the time. It wasn't until a month later she found out what they had done.

"This is how they did it - they used their phone to take pictures of my phone, that's how they did it," Jones said. "They didn't send the pictures themselves, they used their phone to snap pictures"

She said the students told her they took several pictures from her phone but she never saw them online.

"The kids were able to upload them but we never found them and we went to try to look them up," Jones said.

Jones also denies being nude in the photos despite what school officials said during a school board hearing on Wednesday, saying they found explicit photos of her.

She is questioning the evidence the school board has which is why she plans to file a lawsuit against the board. WTOC has also put in a request to the school district for more details on their investigation.
