LOGAN - The Logan County Board of Education voted Thursday night to immediately terminate a Logan High School teacher who was accused of sending nude photos of herself to several male students at the school.
The Logan County Sheriff's Department was contacted by the administration at Logan High School Aug. 30 concerning the possibility that Tracy Miller, 27, had sent inappropriate photos to several of the male students. Officials became aware of the situation when one of the students disclosed he had pictures of the teacher saved on his phone.
Miller was arrested by the Logan County Sheriff's Department Sept. 1 and charged with three counts of distribution of obscene matter to minors. She was arraigned in Logan County Magistrate Court and bond was set at $20,000. After agreeing to cooperate with the investigation, she was released on a personal recognizance bond.
Miller was suspended by the school board in September, with the board stating further action would be taken pending court proceedings. However, Sheriff Sonya Porter said Friday that Miller's case is still pending in court.
This investigation is still being continued by the Logan County Sheriff's Department. Additional charges could be added pending the results of the investigation.
Miller, who is originally from Boone Count, started teaching health at Logan High School in January 2017.
When Miller was interviewed by Sgt. Nick Booth, the PRO officer at Logan High School, she told the officer she sent most of the photos through Snapchat. She said she did not recall the number of pictures sent and that she had possibly sent them to as many as five different students. Investigators believe the photos were sent between the months of March and July.
