Sexting episode at high school probed by Pa. state police

(CBS) HEMPFIELD, Pa. - State police are investigating a sexting case at Hempfield High School in southeast Pennsylvania.

CBS Pittsburgh reports school administrators called authorities to say that sexually explicit images were being exchanged by students via cell phone. Some students said it started when a 16-year old girl sent a video of herself to her boyfriend, who then sent it to at least three friends when the couple broke up.

The station says so far, at least five students have been identified as receiving a sexually explicit text message. Police are investigating whether there could be more students involved.

"Now we have confiscated a few cell phones and have talked to multiple students and their parents at the school to try and determine exactly what happened," State Police Trooper Steve Limani said.
