Trading sex photos
Amy Adele Hasinoff, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver and the author of a new book, “Sexting Panic,” contends that schools need to find new ways to talk to students about the issue.
“But we know it doesn’t work.”Correction: An article on Saturday about high school students in Cañon City, Colo., who traded naked pictures of themselves misstated the distinction claimed by the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, a nearby tourist attraction that employs many people from the tightly knit community.Heidi Wolfgang, 41, a mother who no longer lives in the district, said in a telephone interview that she had spoken to a Cañon City Middle School counselor in 2012 after she found photographs of a nude adolescent on a cellphone owned by her daughter, then 12. Another mother, Lisa Graham, 46, said her daughter, now a junior at the high school, had been “propositioned by multiple guys” during her freshman year.“He told me there was nothing the school could do because half the school was sexting,” Ms. She called the response “heartbreaking,” and said she eventually decided to educate her child at home. Welsh said that like other school systems across the country, Cañon City schools had received reports of students’ exchanging lewd photographs, but that he had not been aware of the scope of the issue until recently, when officials received anonymous tips through a system called Colorado Safe2Tell.“If there’s not a lead that takes you to this larger thing going on, why would you go there? “She received unsolicited photos from guys, which she immediately deleted,” Ms. “I’m frustrated if people knew and didn’t shut it down three years ago.” Mr.The high school has turned over a cellphone that contains several hundred images to the police, and investigators will try to identify the children in the pictures, according to Paul Schultz, the Cañon City police chief.No arrests have been made, Chief Schultz said, and parents have been notified about the apps that can be used to mask the illicit photographs. Le Doux, the district attorney, said the investigation would look into whether any adults were involved, whether children were bullied into participating, and whether any illegal sexual contact occurred.
