At least one minor has been identified in the nude photos, which could lead to criminal charges of a high school student. The superintendent tells Boston 25 News the first thing they did was notify police since sexting among young teens could turn into a child pornography case.

One mother we spoke with says her daughter is a victim in this case.

“They’re trading them amongst themselves like baseball cards,” she said.
