Elementary school students arrested for nude Snapchat pics

Two elementary school students in Louisiana were arrested after a girl sent nude photos of herself to a boy who then shared them on Snapchat, police said.

The students at Bonnie Ecole Elementary School were arrested Wednesday after school administrators found a male student in possession of nude photographs of a female classmate. A subsequent investigation revealed that the male student sent the racy photographs to several other students throughout the school via Snapchat, police in Slidell said Thursday.

“Most kids are not aware, but sending a nude photo of themselves is a crime,” Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal said in a statement. “Parents need to have a candid conversation with their kids about the seriousness, and the long-term effects, of taking and sending nude photographs.”

Both students, who were not identified, were arrested on charges of distribution of child pornography and were later released into the custody of their parents, police said.

A police spokesman told the Times-Picayune that the department will not disclose the age or grade of either student. A school district spokeswoman also declined to comment, citing privacy laws, according to the newspaper.
