A high school student from Rancho Cucamonga could face jail time after tweeting nude pictures of at least four underage females. San Bernardino Sheriffs are investigating the scandal, and all the students involved, even the girls who took the nude pictures, could face felony charges. Tweets and texts involving nude photos of at least four underage girls in San Benardino County might lead to child pornography charges. The case involves students at Etiwanda and Rancho Cucamonga high schools. The female students took the pictures of themselves and distributed them via text messages, according to investigators. The male student then posted the images on Twitter, according to authorities. The male student was suspended, according to school officials. It was not immediately clear whether the boy obtained the images via text or some other method. Charges had not been filed as of Thursday morning, but the students could face felony child pornography charges.
Houston teenager fatally shoots himself while taking a selfie with a gun
A teenage boy in North Carolina has been prosecuted for having nude pictures of himself on his own mobile phone. The young man, who is now 17 but was 16 at the time the photos were discovered, had to strike a plea deal to avoid potentially going to jail and being registered as a sex offender. Experts condemned the case as ludicrous. The boy was, however, punished by the courts, and had to agree to be subject to warrantless searches by law enforcement for a year, in addition to other penalties. The young man was also named in the media and suffered a suspension as quarterback of his high school football team while the case was being resolved. Cormega Copening, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was prosecuted as an adult under federal child pornography felony laws, for sexually exploiting a minor. The minor was himself. Copening was charged with four counts of making and possessing images of himself and one count of possessing a naked image of his year-old girlfriend. His girlfriend, Brianna Denson, took a plea deal after being prosecuted on similar charges for having naked, suggestive pictures of herself on her cellphone.
Boy, 14, added to police database after sexting female classmate naked image
A high school student in Moncton is researching why sexting and sending nude photographs and videos have become the norm among teens. Osowski said after her own experience with being harassed online, she decided it was time to address the issue head-on. Last September, she started a research project on gender toxicity in the media, which included exploring why boys feel the pressure to ask young women to take photos of themselves naked and send it to them. She said her research shows that teenage girls feel compelled to comply because their behaviour is being driven by media messages that she says are toxic for young women. She has presented her suggestions, which include in-class discussions about nude photos, media exploitation of women and unhealthy male gender representations online, to the Anglophone East School District. Psychology teacher, Heather Gunn and sociology teacher, Chris Evans have helped Osowski in her research. Osowski says she would like to see students learn how to view sexting and media through a critical eye.

Mike DeForest , Investigative Reporter. But clicking on those web links reveals hundreds of nude photographs of current and former high school students, all of which have been posted by anonymous users. Besides the explicit images, the website also contains hundreds more photos of clothed women, likely stolen from their Facebook and Instagram accounts. Those portraits are being used to solicit "wins," a code word for nude photographs. While some users have requested naked images of current high school girls, others have posted messages hoping to obtain photos of women who graduated as far back as 14 years ago, including a few who are now married and have children. I didn't think anybody I went to high school with would ever do that. Elaine said she had no idea someone was using her Facebook profile photo as bait for nude pictures until Local 6 News brought it to her attention.
