”Sexting” Pennsylvania teens land in jailJanuary 16th, 2009 - 6:25 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Jan 16 (ANI): ”Sexting” sending nude or semi-nude pictures of oneself to others via cell phone is getting quite popular in America, so much so, that it has now led to an increase in child porn arrests in Pennsylvania.
According to reports by Fox News, three female high school students (ages 15 or 16) sent nude or semi-nude photos to three of their male classmates (ages 16 or 17) in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.
However, officials at Greensburg Salem High School officials allegedly caught one of the students using the cell phone during school hours, which is against school policy.
When they seized the phone they found the pictures and called the police, who later reached other phones with the photos on them, reports the New York Daily News.
Times Online reported that the teens were arrested on child pornography changes. (ANI)
