An Illinois high school teacher has been placed on leave for allegedly sharing a homemade sex video on Snapchat that several students viewed.

Moline High School Principal Trista Sanders contacted police in November after she was tipped off that the teacher posted a video of herself having sex, according to the Quad-City Times.

Multiple students saw the video, which could be viewed by anyone who was friends with the teacher on the site, the news outlet reported.

A police report obtained by the Quad-City Times does not identify the teacher or the children involved in the case, which the State Attorney’s Office has closed with no charges filed.

But the teacher has been placed on leave as the district follows all administrative policies laid out by state law, school board President Sangeetha Rayapati said.

Screenshots of a group chat included with the police report show students discussing the video and debating whether to inform the teacher about the matter.

The teacher told investigators that a friend called frantically urging her to delete the post.

She claimed not to have known what the friend was referring to, but checked her Snapchat account and took down the post without watching it, adding that she believed she might have been hacked.

Assistant State’s Attorney Heidi Weller wrote that investigators could not meet the burden of proof that the teacher knowingly or intentionally distributed the pornographic material.

She added that “there does not appear to be any intent to groom individual students.”
