NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A teacher who was arrested in November on accusations of sending nude photos to a student has been arrested again for similar circumstances. 

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office charged Viridiana Ramos, 30, of Marrero, on Nov. 17 with indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Ramos worked at  L.W. Ruppel Academy for Advanced Studies and was accused of sending naked photos of herself to a 13-year-old student.

According to a report by NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, Ramos was arrested again on similar accusations. 

A student at Fisher Middle-High School in Lafitte contacted the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in December and told detectives Ramos also sent him nude photos of herself using the social media app Snapchat in 2016, according to the report. 

The report said the boy was 14 at the time of the incident. 

Ramos was a band teacher at five schools:

  • Ruppel
  • Fisher
  • McDonogh No. 26 Elementary in Gretna
  • Terrytown Elementary in Terrytown
  • Leo Kerner Elementary in Lafitte

After the Nov 17 arrest, Ramos was suspended without pay. 

The victim in the Nov 17 incident said Ramos started contacting him on Snapchat in October 2017, the sheriff’s office said. The chats escalated from regular conversation to nude pictures.

At least one other student saw the images, officers said.

Ramos was released from jail on Nov. 21 on a $5,000 bond, but is now being held Tuesday without bond at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna.

    Officials say a fox and an alpaca died of their injuries, Sunday, after a Saturday attack by a jaguar that escaped from his enclosure at the Audubon Zoo. That brings the total to eight animals Valerio killed while on the loose. Yet, visitors weren't deterred. In fact, some say the attack was their motivation.
