Former Central DeWitt H.S. Teacher Gets Probation for Sexting Student

CLINTON, Iowa (AP) – A former high school teacher in eastern Iowa who sent nude photos of herself to a student has been given two years of probation.

Clinton County District Court records say 32-year-old Ramsey Hinkle also was given a two-year suspended prison sentence and was ordered to register as a sex offender. She’d pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation by a school employee.

The records say Hinkle admitted sending the photos to a 17-year-old boy while she was a teacher at Central DeWitt High School in November and December 2015. The boy told a police officer that emails he exchanged with Hinkle were sexual in nature. He reported that they talked about having sex but didn’t because he was too nervous to follow through on the idea.
