Barat Academy Teacher Charged in Topless Phote Email Case

Of local interest, I suppose:
ST. CHARLES COUNTY — A teacher at Barat Academy in Dardenne Prairie e-mailed two topless photos of herself to one of her students, prosecutors said.

Melissa R. Moss, 27, of Chesterfield, was charged Tuesday in St. Charles County Circuit Court with furnishing pornographic material to a minor, a misdemeanor. Authorities say Moss e-mailed the topless photos in November. She no longer works at the school.

She declined to comment, her husband, Kevin Moss, said Wednesday. Police did not identify the 15-year-old student.

Debby Watson, president of the independent Catholic high school, could not be reached for comment Wednesday night, though another school administrator said Moss has not worked at the school for months.

A profile called "School Isn't the Same Without Melissa Moss" features comments from some of Moss' supporters protesting the teacher's departure from the school.

"We want her back at Barat Academy," the profile says. "Nothing's the same without her. … Our administration turned into meanies."
"We want her back." Of course, you do...Sad that this young woman has probably jeopardized her entire career and may never teach again - what a stupid stunt!

I often wonder how Barat's religion curriculum is going these days?
