ST. PETERS, MO (KTVI)-- A child pornography investigation is underway in St. Charles County and the suspects are teenagers.

The St. Peters police department confirms that they have confiscated the cell phones from some students at Fort Zumwalt East High School.

Authorities say the principal learned earlier this week that some students took nude selfies and texted the pictures to other students at the school.   School administrators say the pictures are of girls in various stages of undress and that boys had them on their cell phones. Six students are believed to be involved but police say there could be more.

Police say all the students involved are 16 years old and younger and they could be charged with distributing child pornography. There could be charges coming in a couple weeks. The superintendent, Dr. Dubray, says the district is investigating as well and the students could face disciplinary action ranging from suspension to expulsion.

He says the district does have prevention programs in place where a family court judge speaks to students about the dangers of sexting.

    Didn’t Gov. Nixon just veto a bill that would remove teens from the registry? Perhaps that should be reconsidered???

    I heard a 5-year-old accidently bumped the shutter button on her parents’ smartphone and took a pic of herself naked!

    She is now serving 10 years for producing pornography!

    The let out a violent murderer to make room for her. Just not as serious as dirty, awful NUDITY! LOL

    Coming soon: 5 year prison sentences for failing to pray every day.

    I think there should be consequences but I don’t think the kids should be put on a list that is going to effect their entire lives. That’s just stupid. Who hasn’t made a poor decision as a teenager???

    The law and order Christian evangelical right wing must be overjoyed that we are spending our tax dollars on busting middle schoolers for having nudie selfies and tagging them for life as “sexual predators”. Great job right wingers!
