A MARRIED ex-beauty queen sent Snapchat naked photos of herself to a 15-year-old boy.
Ramsey BethAnn Bearse, 29, admitted sending the pics, but claimed they were meant for her husband.
The former Miss Kentucky, who has been sacked from her teaching job, told a court she continued to sext the boy as she "was afraid not to appease him".
Bearse, from Charleston in West Virginia, now faces up to 20 years in jail.
The boy also sent naked snaps of himself to her between August and October 2018.
Bearse was arrested and charged a short time later.
'I MESSED UP'
She said: "Since I am the adult, and he was just a teenager, it is my fault, and I accept full blame for the situation.
"So that’s how I’m guilty of this crime. I messed up big-time."
She is due to be sentenced next month and could be caged for 20 years.
Bearse also faces 50 years on probation and may be put on the sex offenders’ register for life.
She has been axed as an eighth-grade science teacher at Andrew Jackson Middle School in Cross Lanes, West Virginia.
Bearse was named Miss Kentucky in 2014, playing bluegrass music to judges.
She admitted possessing material depicting minors in sexually explicit conduct.
