Not surprisingly, local Police Chief Carl "Oh Crap" Segatti, seems to be getting slightly upset with who teen craze of passing around naked pictures on your cell phone, adding "You have these two nitwit girls who take pictures of themselves for reasons best known to them. And then sent these photos to unwitting recipients whose phone rings, and they open it up, and bada-bing, there are these two naked girls."
Here's more from The Evening Sun:
Pictures of two naked Spring Grove Area High School freshmen forwarded to more than a dozen classmates could mean criminal charges for all involved. In Spring Grove, police are still investigating who received pictures of two completely nude girls. The case has been forwarded to the York County District Attorney's Office, but no charges have been filed. Police say the girls took the photos of themselves and sent them to others, some of whom forwarded them on.
School officials confiscated phones Monday, coming into classrooms and pulling students involved and taking their phones. District officials then called the police.
Northern York County Regional Police took 15 to 20 cell phones with the X-rated photos, police Chief Carl Segatti said.
Although the students could face child pornography charges - a felony that would follow them for a lifetime - the district attorney's office policy attempts to avoid that step. "We don't want them to walk away with felonies on their record," he said.
Teens who agree to forfeit their phones to officials are usually not charged with a criminal offense in York County if they agree to having their phone destroyed. Boyles said the actual destruction of a cell phone or computer often provokes greater distress in teenagers than threats of criminal charges or warnings about naked photos that follow them for a lifetime.
"When you say you are going to take away the phone or the computer, that perks them up a little bit," he said.
Besides acting as punishment, confiscating the phones is necessary because it is impossible to completely wipe the phones clean, Boyles said. Even after the delete button is pushed, the pictures remain burned into the phone, available to be pulled out by anyone with the technical know-how, he said.
