Agoura Hills High School Staffer's Suspected Nude Photo Creates Furor

The woman claims the photo was doctored, and the person suspected of posting it on Facebook said his account was hacked

The photo of a nude woman is making the rounds on social media and it appears to be a female administrator at Agoura High School, though she claims it’s a doctored photo.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Unit is investigating how the photo ended up on the Facebook page of an adult male, and was then copied and distributed by many underage students at the school.

The woman claims it’s not her, but many students at the school suspect the photo is real, adding that it’s harmed the staffer’s reputation.

“I just can’t believe it. It’s kind of disappointing to think the hierarchy of the school would do something like that; takes the trust out of the adults,” said Daniel Schwartz, Agoura High School student.

School officials would not comment on the picture, but Las Virgenes Deputy Superintendent Dan Stepenosky superintendent told local newspaper The Acorn he believes the photo is a fake and suspects the staffer is a victim of cyber bullying.

Investigators said the woman is not suspected of any crime. One parent, who requested to be remain anonymous, said however the photo originated, there’s a lesson here for young people.

“If it was something private that she sent to somebody - it was private between them and she didn’t send it to anybody else,” the parent said. “It’s a great teaching moment for our kids. This is why we don’t take pictures of ourselves on digital media, anybody can get hold of it.”
