6 New Trier Students Charged With Distributing Inappropriate Photos

The police investigation began last month. The male students are being charged as juveniles and police are not releasing their names.

Six New Trier High School students were charged with distributing inappropriate photos by text and email, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The investigation began last month and District 203 Superintendent Linda Yonke alerted parents that the police were looking into the matter.

According to the Tribune, Winnetka police confirmed Tuesday that six male students were charged Oct. 25 after police interviewed more than 20 students in their investigation. Police are not releasing the students’ names or hometowns, or saying how the photos were inappropriate.

In her letter to parents, Yonke wrote, according to Wilmette Life: “We hope families can use this opportunity to reinforce our internet safety messages and to discuss the consequences and permanency of actions involving the internet, social media, texting or other forms of electronic communication.”

to Goodness Sake - it appears you must be the product of NT as you do not know the difference between "there" and "their". you ask, "what else are they supposed to do?" -- how about being proactive rather than dealing with things after they become a problem. nearby high schools have dog searches. how about a technology seminar for students - i think there are evening seminars for parents - but all students should attend.

For what? Bad judgement? Geez. I agree with the comment about Boys will be boys. There's something to be said about Jefferson's sentiments: the bigger the government, the less the liberty. Don't the police have better things to do? This needs to be addressed by parents and community organizations like temple and churches. These limousine liberals---Do As I Say. Speaking of limousine liberals/major Winnetka bullies: the Crown Royals have a full on rebellion in their Versailles of a company town down here in Colorado: Aspen. Google Shia Kapos Haves vs. Have-nots. Now it's getting interesting: http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/home/155184 and http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/home/155327

@goodness sake I'm sure the NT sophomore who had her life turned upside down by a senior who "had drugs in her system" aka coming down from a high, and whose own family members had drug bust priors, would not agree w/ your cavalier attitude and assessment of the state of drug use at New Trier. I'm certain her family would do anything to roll back the hands of time on her new reality post traumatic brain injury. So what that the druggie senior went to "jail". She changed someone's life forever, and justice truly was not served. Had there been a stiffer penalty-as in hard time in prison, then maybe that adorable 5yr old angel that was killed in HP might be alive. Maybe her murderer, yet another teen druggie repeat offender would have "sobered up" to the possibility of hard time and not gotten behind the wheel huffing that day.

I hope the students charged hire great lawyers, because this is so wrong. The girls created the photos of themselves and distributed them, but they charged the boys who passed them around. I honestly do not understand these girls -- these Kardasian/Paris Hilton inspired porn chicks who love flaunting their exploitables. And now the boys who received these highly charged photos are charged. Why weren't the girls charged with manufacturing and distributing porn? Who started this? The girls. Boys will be boys.
