An unidentified teacher at Highland Middle School in Anderson, Indiana., accidentally "synced" a photo of herself from her iPhone to her classroom iPad -- and then let several students use the tablet.

"We couldn't do anything not to look at it," said student Joshua Troutt, 13. "It just popped up when [a classmate] pressed the button."

What they saw, police say, was "from the neck down, with partial exposure" of her chest. Detective Joel Sandefur said no "criminal violation could be gleaned from the evidence as presented, the matter was turned over to the school and the police investigation closed."

Assistant Superintendent Beth Clark agreed the whole situation was an accident, and there was no violation of the district's "technology use policy."

Still, someone needed to be punished, right? That's what outraged parents. No punishment for the teacher was announced, but the kids who saw the photo were suspended.

A television actor has been charged with the rape of a teenage boy.

The actor, who has not been named, allegedly attacked the 14-year-old at a theatre in the London area.

He is also accused of three other sex attacks and an "assault by beating" at a London school, Scotland Yard said.

The actor will appear in court on 6 November.



No doubt speculation will be rife on Twitter.

Well they've given his age and where he's from so probably easy to deduce. 17 year old famous actor from Sutton London can't be a long list

Indeed, Christopher, but Twitter has actually named several people before it was legally allowed to the public.
