San Diego Police to File Charges Against Teen Sexters

A "teaching moment" where students learn that authorities are awful people

San Diego police say criminal charges will be filed in a sexting ring involving dozens of students from several high schools and one middle school.

According to investigators, it started with a dozen girls sending nude photos of themselves to their boyfriends. Then, the boyfriends passed the pictures on to their friends, creating a web of photo sharing.

"They are fully nude shots, sexually explicit of some of our high school students," San Diego Police Lt. Chuck Kaye said.

While the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) is not releasing the names of the schools involved, investigators say they have identified 30 students from six high schools and one middle school they believe were involved in the sexting ring.
