Assistant Hillsdale County Prosecutor Megan Stiverson said the original “sexting” incident involved two female students at Hillsdale High School and a male student at Quincy High School. She said at least a dozen others are involved with some students taking explicit photos of themselves and sending them with their cell phones. In some instances, photos were traded with other students.

Most of the photos are of students younger than 18.

Stiverson said sending a nude photo of a minor is a felony, even if the minor is sending it.
