ROCHESTER, MI – An investigation began in September that involves students from Rochester Adams High School and Van Hoosen Middle School concerning a sexting scandal. Word is awaited on what the Oakland County Prosecutor will decide.
All of the students involved are under 16 years old and go to either Rochester Adams High School or Van Hoosen Middle School. Each student could face a felony charge. Twenty-four girls and seven boys are involved.
The problem started when the young girls took explicit photos of themselves which were sent out via text messages to others. The photos were then shared out over and over again. It got out of control.
Police say those who took the photos could be charged with producing child pornography, while those who shared them could be charged with distributing child pornography because the teens in the photos are minors.
