Teen arrested for responding, sharing nude photo
BOSSIER CITY–A 17-year-old student athlete at Parkway High School in south Bossier City, is facing child pornography charges after his 16-year-old classmate sent him naked footage of herself.
Reportedly, the 16-year-old white, female sent the Black, male student a nude video first and he responded by sending her one of him. When her parents found out, they reported it to the police.
Louisiana law states anyone under the age of 17 found to be sexting any person of any age can be charged with a misdemeanor. Even if acting consensually, teens can be charged with with child pornography.
The boy has since been arrested and is facing child porn charges, but the girl has not been arrested or charged. Although his name has been released to the media, her name has not. (The Drum policy is to not print juvenile names in these cases)
He has been released on a $15,000 bond, but still has to face the charges in a court. His family said they expect to pay at least $4,000 in legal fees for his case. A youcaring.com page has been established to help the family.
