SANTA FE, Texas (AP) - Police in a Galveston County school
district have confiscated dozens of cell phones from students after
nude pictures of two junior high girls began circulating.
Santa Fe school superintendent Jon Whittemore says the students
were forwarding the images to each other in a circle that was
opening and getting progressively wider.
He says it all started when two Santa Fe Junior High School
students took nude photos of themselves and sent them to their
boyfriends. The boyfriends forwarded the photos to others, who in
turn forwarded them again.
Whittemore says district administrators are checking the phones
and, in some cases, asking parents to come to claim them. He says
the two girls and the boys who forwarded the photos will be first
in line for disciplinary action. But he says so many students
received the images that it would be impossible to discipline them
