Amelia Ressler Snapchat Video
Ressler recorded touching herself inappropriately in front of a second-grade class, Carroll County communication director Ashley Hulsey told CBS 46. The class was being held in person, not over Zoom or on another video platform, police said.
“It’s disturbing. That’s what it is. Where she was sitting, it wasn’t like it was a closed desk and couldn’t look up and visually see what she was doing at the time,” Hulsey told the news station. She said someone in the community saw the video and reported it to authorities.
“It appears she was masturbating while the classroom was full of kids,” Hulsey told Fox 5 Atlanta. “We obtained video evidence because she videoed it herself and disseminated it and we were able to get a hold of that evidence.”
Ressler posted the 13-second masturbation video on Snapchat that led to her arrest, according to The Exposure, which obtained the video clip and information about it. The Georgia-based social media page also posted a screenshot of the video showing Ressler, wearing yoga pants and mittens, with her feet up on a desk. Another screenshot shows her hand between her legs.

The confidence that’s within me won’t allow me to stoop that low. I know I am WORTHY. I do not need to pretend to be anything other than myself. I am already more than ENOUGH!! My feelings, wants, and needs are valid. I WILL NOT allow insecurities to control me. I WILL shine! I WILL succeed! I am PATIENT and SELF CONTROLLED. I am RESPECTFUL and HUMBLE. I am SINCERE and LOYAL and COURTEOUS. I LOVE unconditionally and without ceasing. GOD has led me thus far and I will not falter now. I will be here, real and rare and true, NO MATTER WHAT!! I will continue to have FAITH because I know my PURPOSE! I empower, inspire, motivate, and celebrate others. I practice kindness and forgiveness. I’m not afraid of the truth. I make mistakes and I own them and learn from them. But depending on how you feel about yourself, you’ll either admire and respect me or you’ll hate me. Either way I WILL ALWAYS BE ME! 💯

She graduated about the same time we did, so it just seems worse.”
