FLORIDA – Lake Placid Middle School in Highlands County has discovered students sexting and sharing pornographic videos of each other that have been used as a bully tactic. 20 middle school girls have sent nude pictures of themselves to other male students. This is definitely disturbing for kids of such a young age.
But what’s more disturbing is the fact that Highland’s County Sheriff says the incidents are being investigated for possible charges of child pornography or sexual exploitation of a minor. Child pornography charges… against a child. This is something that the school authorities should take care of, but it should be an administrative matter, not a criminal one.
