Slidell Police were contacted by school administrators at Bonne Ecole Elementary after they discovered a male student was in possession of nude photographs of a female student. The investigation unveiled the fact that the male juvenile sent the nude photographs to numerous other students at the school through the popular social media app, Snapchat.
Wednesday (April 18, 2018), investigators arrested the female juvenile, who took and sent the nude photographs of herself, and the male juvenile, for mass distributing the nude photographs to other students.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal says, “Most kids are not aware, but sending a nude photo of themselves is a crime. Parents need to have a candid conversation with their kids about the seriousness, and the long term effects, of taking and sending nude photographs.”
Both juveniles were arrested, and later released to the custody of their parents.
