COLLIER TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A sexting incident involving local high school students is under investigation.
Collier Township Police say a 15-year-old girl sent a nude picture from her phone to her boyfriend’s phone.
They’re now trying to determine who else may have received the photo.
“We’re still conducting our investigation to make a determination as to how widespread or who had access to or viewed any of the pictures involved,” Collier Police Sgt. Eric Davis said.
As soon as the administration at Chartiers Valley High School heard about the picture, the Collier Township police were called.
“Possession of picture, video, something that would depict an obscene act, something lewd, but the person depicted in that picture or video is under the age of 18 would be considered violation or child pornography,” Davis said.
Depending on the severity of the distribution of the photo, they’ll work with the district attorney’s office on whether or not charges will be filed.
Police are telling Chartiers Valley students that if they delete the picture now, they can avoid a possession charge.
Police say don’t forward the picture because it’s a distribution charge for pornography.
