Married Christian Teacher Arrested for Lying About Nude Photos on Revenge Porn Website

A Christian school teacher who resigned from her job last year after nude photos of her surfaced on the Internet has been arrested for filing a false police report.

Jamie Climie, 36, was arrested earlier in January and charged with obstructing official business after she allegedly lied to authorities on Nov. 24, 2013, telling them that her iPhone 4S had been stolen and that's why racy photos of her were posted on the revenge porn websites "Dirty.com" and "My Ex" the day before.

Climie formerly served as a fifth-grade teacher at the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy in Ohio, but was forced to resign after the racy photos made their way onto the Internet. Climie had told police in November that whoever stole her phone had uploaded the photos, one of which includes Climie standing in front of a shower and baring her chest to the camera. The photos had received over 110,000 views since they were put on the Internet, and Climie, a mother, had initially claimed that the photos were only meant for her husband.

An investigation later found, however, that Climie had sent the photos to a cell-phone owner other than her husband, a married friend of hers with whom she had reportedly been carrying on an affair. Additionally, a forensic investigation tracking cell phone records and IP addresses found that Climie's phone had never been stolen.

Climie made national headlines last year because the nude photos surfaced while she was still employed as a teacher at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. Following the scandal, Climie was put on administrative leave and resigned shortly after in November.

Police charged Climie with obstructing official business, a misdemeanor, on Jan. 16, and the former teacher turned herself in to authorities at West Chester Police Department on Jan. 21. She then reportedly admitted that she had lied and her phone had never been stolen. Climie is set for her next court date in Butler County on Feb. 4.

In a previous press conference, Climie's husband had told reporters than neither he nor his wife knew how the revealing photos had been leaked on the Internet.

Comments left on the websites where the racy photos were uploaded indicate Climie may have been involved with controversy and possible infidelity before this most recent incident. "This person is not innocent, she was a teacher at [redacted] several years ago and was fired for inappropriate behavior with her students. I was a teacher at this school and couldn't believe the things that went on," wrote one viewer.
