An English teacher who worked at the Hebrew Academy, a Jewish private school, lost her job after her nude videos and photos allegedly surfaced in Miami Beach and Israel.
Officer Ernesto Rodriguez said on Thursday that detectives from the Miami Beach Police Department’s special victims unit are investigating Alexandra Leah Handwerger, also known as Alex Lowe.
According to Rodriguez, the Hebrew Academy contacted the police department on Feb. 19, “advising of possible inappropriate photos being shared between a teacher and students.”
The school dismissed her on Jan. 30, after she allegedly admitted that the nude videos and photos were hers, according to an incident report.
The 48-year-old mother’s attorney Jude Faccidomo released a statement saying the police investigation will clear her since the issue was brought to the school’s attention through gossip and innuendo. He also said the police report references false e-mails and second-hand sources.
Rodriguez was asking anyone with information about the case, or anyone who feels they may have been victimized, to call MBPD at 305-673-7900.
