BUTLER and Clarion – Five Karns City School District students were recently charged with sending sexually explicit images stemming from an incident between Dec. 1, 2017 and Jan. 24 in Clarion and Butler counties.
According to state police, a 14-year-old Petrolia girl and a 12-year-old East Brady girl shared nude pictures of themselves with a 14-year-old Chicora boy and a 15-year-old East Brady boy. The boys then reportedly shared the photos with a 13-year-old Chicora boy, “other minors” and both accused girls, also making them victims in the case.
The photos were reportedly shared via a cell phone, and while police said the investigation began after they were notified by school district officials, they do not believe the photos were shared on school grounds.
Charges against both girls and all three boys were filed with the office of District Judge Lewis Stoughton in Chicora.
