U. of Iowa TA accidentally sends sexual content to students

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa says a teaching assistant sent an email with files depicting inappropriate sexual content to her students by accident.

University spokesman Tom Moore says he does not know how many students received the email.

Moore says the teaching assistant "regrets her actions" and the school is asking students who received the message to delete it and not share the files with anyone.

Moore says the incident was inappropriate, and university officials are investigating. He said the school would "take appropriate actions under our policies and procedures."

Late Wednesday, Moore confirmed the teaching assistant had been assigned to another class.

Since the teaching assistant is a student, that person's name is not being made public.
