At least three students were exposed on social media, court documents say. At least five Virginia students are at the center of a sexting investigation for spreading naked images, according to court documents. An assistant principal at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School informed a school resource officer that naked pictures were being circulated throughout the school, court documents say. The assistant principal discussed a recent videotaped fight between two Henderson students with the officer last month, noting one of the students involved had recently broken up with his girlfriend, court records indicate. The pair told police they exchanged naked photos. After deleting the picture from Snapchat, the recipient also sent the photo to another student, court documents said. The student said the girl was a ninth grader at George Mason and that the photo was a screenshot from a live Instagram video the girl filmed. The girl told police she made a video in which her breasts were exposed, according to court documents.

Y ounger students are no different than their older peers when it comes to sexting, a new study reports. More high school students are sending and receiving sexually explicit text messages or photos, and that makes them more likely to engage in other types of sexual activity as well. Now researchers say the same trends are trickling down to younger students in middle school. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics found that a significant number of adolescents between ages 12 and 14 sext, and that these children are more likely to kiss, have oral sex or sexual intercourse than their counterparts who did not send such explicit messages. The study surveyed seventh grade students from five urban public middle schools in Rhode Island. More concerning, say the scientists, was that sexting was associated with a higher likelihood of sexual behaviors such as touching genitals, oral sex, and vaginal sex. According to the study authors, teens who sexted were four to seven times more likely to also partake in sexual activities. Students that admitted to sending pictures showed even higher rates of sexual activity.
