Ramsey BethAnn Bearse Scandal
Former Miss Kentucky Ramsey BethAnn Bearse pleaded guilty in a n*de photos scandal involving a teenage boy on Tuesday.
Bearse, who won the Kentucky beauty pageant title in 2014, appeared in Kanawha County Circuit Court in Charleston, W.Va. on Tuesday, where she entered a guilty plea to one count of possession of material depicting minors in s*xually explicit conduct, WCHS 8 reported.
The pageant titleholder also worked as a teacher at Andrew Jackson Middle School in Charleston. Her victim was described as a 15-year-old student, who attended the same school for “some of the time” the incident took place, according to the report.
Bearse apologized to a judge on Tuesday, admitting that she committed the crime on the social media app Snapchat.
“I’m sorry that I made a mess of things,” Bearse said (via WCHS). “I made a mistake.”
The former beauty pageant crown holder alleged in court that communication with her former students began innocently as she discussed their summer plans with them. The male teen that she sent nude photos to “asked a lot questions and I crossed the line and shared too much information of what I was going through at the time,” she said, according to the local outlet.
