Teen in trouble for texting nude photos to 12-yr-old

Posted: Updated:


An 18-year-old male from Ashtabula County could be facing criminal charges for texting nude photos of himself to a 12-year-old girl.

The Ashtabula County Sheriff's Department began their investigation after three students alerted a school resource officer.

According to the report, the suspect is a student at Edgewood High School and the 12-year-old is a Willowick Middle School student and is also the step-sister of an Edgewood student.

Apparently the girl showed the photo to her step-sister, who recognized the suspect as one of her classmates at Edgewood High.

The report also says that officers were told that the 12-year-old had little contact with the suspect outside of Instagram.

After initially denying that he sent the picture, the suspect later confessed, saying that he was under the influence of "Spice (K2)", a type of synthetic marijuana, according to the report.

The suspect gave police a list of names which consisted of 10 to 15 people, ranging in ages from 12 to 18 years old, who the suspect says all received the nude photo.

Officers confiscated the suspect's cellphone.

The Ashtabula County Prosecutor's Office will review the case for possible charges.
