A southwest Kansas prosecutor is considering charges against several young people suspected of being involved in a sexting case in which a teenage girl’s nude photographs have been shared with others through text messages.
The Hutchinson News reports Garden City police became aware of the incident in January when Garden City High School officials notified them that a girl reported other students were passing around nude pictures taken when she was 13 years old.
Investigators identified two victims, ages 14 and 16, along with six suspects ranging in age from 14 to 18 years old.
Affidavits seeking charges of electronic solicitation of a child, sexual exploitation of a child, interference with a law enforcement officer and promoting obscenity to minors have been submitted to the Finney County prosecutor’s office.
