Gardiner Police Investigate ‘Sexting’ At The High School
Gardiner Area High School students are currently being interviewed by authorities as part of an ongoing investigation of 'sexting' in the school.
The following is an excerpt from the Kennebec Journal.
Gardiner police have seized cellphones as part of an ongoing investigation into a report of sexting — sending sexually explicit photos or email on cellphones — among students at Gardiner Area High School.
“We have an open investigation that was brought to our attention by the administration of Gardiner Area High School that could involve sexting or dissemination of inappropriate pictures through the use of the app Snapchat,” Gardiner police Chief James Toman said.
Do you think there is anything that we can do about this as parents and as a community? Or do yo think that technology has just gotten to a point where no amount of teaching and guidance will prevent teens from acting out in this way. It's not hard to understand why the pressure is there for them to do things like this- I.E. all of these celebrities who are paid millions and glamorized for posting and posing in nude photos.
