A substitute teacher has been charged after she was arrested for allegedly sending nude pictures and inappropriate texts to ‘several 14-year-old boys.’
Amanda Lenea Pardue, 35, worked for Dade County schools in Georgia and is believed to have been a substitute teacher in the area for two years.
She was arrested on charges of electronically furnishing obscene material to minors, electronic pornography and child exploitation, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

A warrant was issued for Pardue and she turned herself in to Dade County jail on Thursday morning, reports meaww.com.
It is believed Pardue was released in the afternoon on a bond of $30,000.
Pardue’s attorney, Larry Stagg, told Times Free Press that his client believed the problems began when she was included in a group text.
Mr Stagg believes the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is targeting communications made between Pardue and the 14-year-old boys on Snapchat.
He said: ‘My greatest concern is [the GBI] had one thing that they saved and not the rest.
‘Anything can be taken out of context if you had one sentence of conversation.’

Trenton Police asked authorities to launch an investigation into misconduct allegations on on August 31, reports the New York Post.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jan Harris said Ms. Pardue had started substituting almost two years ago, in September 2016.
She said: ‘We are saddened to learn about the arrest of a former substitute teacher. This individual is no longer employed as a substitute teacher with Dade County Schools.
‘We are cooperating with law enforcement officers as they investigate this matter.’
Dade County is in the northwest corner of Georgia and borders Tennessee and Alabama.
