Campbell High School Student Arrested for Sexting

A police report confirms the incident took place at school.

UPDATE: A police report Smyrna-Vinings Patch obtained from Cobb County Juvenile Court confirmed that the incident took place at Campbell High School. A juvenile student received the photos from the 17-year-old via text message. A friend of the juvenile saw the photos and reported the incident to campus police.

Patch orginally reported that three juveniles were involved in the incident, however the police report only lists one juvenile. 

A representative from the Cobb County School District could not comment on the incident because it involves pending disciplinary action. 

May 15: A Smyrna high school student has been arrested and charged with obscene material, a misdemeanor, after Smyrna police say he texted lewd photos to three juvenile girls, WSB reported.

The 17-year-old from Mableton was released from the Cobb County Adult Detention Center the day after his arrest on $5,000 bond.

Neither a representative from the Smyrna Police Department nor Cobb County School District could be reached for further comment at this posting. 

A 2011 study conducted by MTV and the Associated Press found that 15 percent of the 14 to 24-year-olds surveyed sent naked photos or videos of themselves to others, 33 percent received texts or online messages with sexual words and 21 percent had received naked pictures or videos from others.

Parents, have you talked to your children about sexting? Do you think teens take the warnings seriously? Tell us in the comments.

I went to a convience store a couple of days ago. I entered the store, turned right, walked down an aisle about 8 feet and to my right were all sorts of magazines. I stood there for a minute and could see magazines that were of big boobs, big rears, small boobs, small rears, young girls, older women, black, white, oriental, Latino, black and white together, black and black, oriental and white, Latino and white, men and women, women and women, men and men, submissive women, dominant women, etc. Take your pick. I did not move the magazines at all or pick up one. You could see all this simply by standing there for a few moments and looking. Of course there is also the internet and movies and TV

I agree with "Call it like I see it" in the above comment. I think we are addressing not only poorly written laws but too much govt. control by nanny govt. About this case specifically: If this teenager did this again to the girls, that would be a different matter. If the girls are upset about this one incident, he should be given a warning and maybe some SENSITIVITY TRAINING (which is what govt. employees get when they grossly violate most laws) and let that be the end of it.
