Student found an old photo of me and shared it with the school. What is the legal definition of breaking the law in regards to that photo. I didn’t show any pubic areas, had a towel on that wasn’t visible, and only my left thigh and barely partial rear was showing, I was taking a pic of my back muscles.
To answer your question, I need to know who you are, who is the student, how old is he/she and in what grade, what is the relationship between you two, and what was in the photo. Without knowing any of that, I can tell you that there is usually nothing wrong with showing someone a photo of someone else.
But then you add that it was partially nude, though not what would probably be called "erotic." That raises the concerns a bit. If I assume that you're an adult and the student is a minor child, it becomes more concerning. If we jump ahead, if the school finds out that the student is showing that picture, or if some other parents hear about it being passed around school, someone could report this to Child Protective Services. Where there is one partially naked photo, someone could raise the concern that there are more, or fully nude, and then question whether the child is involved and to what extent. Child protective services would send an investigator to meet with you and try to find out what is, or is not, going on. The outcome depends on what they hear or see, and what they believe.
As for the student, depending on his/her age, the school could assign some reasonable punishment for showing around a picture like that. If the student is very young, the teacher might just have a talk about appropriateness and privacy.
