Teens could face child porn charges
RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- In the wake of a sexting scandal that broke out on the campus of a New Jersey high school, police and prosecutors have urged Ridgewood High School students to remove illicit photos and other sexually explicit materials from their electronic devices.
The Ridgewood High School administration said it first caught wind of students exchanging sexually revealing photos of themselves late last week. When school officials launched a preliminary investigation, they found "images of real or simulated sexual acts and photos of naked or semi-naked persons," said school superintendant Daniel Fishbein. Photos, taken outside the school's campus, were being circulated through the smart phone apps, Snapchat and Instagram.
New Jersey Statute 2C:24-4, Endangering the Welfare of Children, "does not differentiate on the age of the actors, but does differentiate on the age of people portrayed in," Chief John Ward of the Ridgewood County Police Department told ABC News.
