SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina high school student accused of taking a former teacher’s cellphone and sharing nude photos of her with other students has pleaded guilty in family court to a computer crime.

Local media outlets report Deputy Solicitor John Anthony of the 16th Circuit Solicitor’s Office said the teenager pleaded guilty Thursday to a second-degree computer crime. Anthony said the teenager was ordered to receive an evaluation by the Department of Juvenile Justice. He will then return to family court for sentencing.

Former Union County High School teacher Leigh Anne Arthur told news outlets she left her cellphone on her desk Feb. 18 during a class change when a teenager took it and took pictures of nude images of her on the phone.
