Police issue warning about nude photos

They are pictures that should not be on anyone's cell phone.That is the message from the Glen Rock Police Department, which is investigating the distribution of nude photos taken by a teenage girl using a cell phone camera. Now, authorities are warning people who have the pictures to hit delete or face consequences.

It is all about protecting a child who obviously made a poor decision, as children have been known to do.

And even though she took the nude photos of herself and sent them to at least one friend, it's still considered child pornography. Anyone who has those images now has a deadline to get rid of them or face trouble with the police.

Glen Rock's school superintendent e-mailed a letter to all parents with a stark warning about the nude photos of the female student.

The letter reads:

"Inappropriate Photographs"
"We have information from the Glen Rock Police Department that inappropriate photographs are being disseminated electronically through cell phones and computers amongst the student body. Please advise your child that the police department is investigating this matter and anyone found with these photographs may be subject to prosecution. Individuals in possession of these photographs have 24 hours to delete them."

Police say the student took the photos of herself during the last school year, e-mailed them to a friend. Then, the pictures spread like a virus throughout the high school.

On Wednesday, police said the 24-hour deadline is ticking for anyone who has the pictures.

Also, the school superintendent will hold an assembly Thursday to discuss the dangers of pornography and everything else they need to know to prevent this from happening again.
