A North Carolina staff member has been charged with disseminating obscene materials to a minor, WYFF4 reported May 19.

Paula Renee Anglin, 43, the receptionist at Macon Middle School in Franklin, was charged with distributing indecent pictures of herself with students. This is a felony offense in North Carolina.

Anglin was arrested Friday, and has since been released on a $15,000 bond. She was caught when photographs began making their way around the school via social media.

Deputies with the Macon County Sheriff's Office interviewed students and adults, and seized items during their investigation.

Sheriff Robert Holland advised parents to

I encourage everyone to ‘parent up’ and know who and what your kids are doing on the Internet and who they are doing it with. Don’t wait until your child becomes a victim to educate yourselves because chances are someone is already surfing the internet and looking for their next victim, and it could be in your own home and right under a parent’s nose.”

This case, as well as an unrelated arrest of a student teacher at the school, are considered ongoing. More charges are expected to be filed.

Anyone with information related to this case or any other crimes involving children is encouraged to contact the Macon County Sheriff’s Office Juvenile Officers at 828-349-2104.
