WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Police in Waukesha say at least 30 students between the ages of 10 and 15 are being investigated for possible sexting.
Police say the students used a variety of social media applications to trade nude photographs and videos of themselves and each other online. Some of the apps look like calculators until they are opened up.
Capt. Dan Baumann said that the students traded the images like baseball cards.
The Waukesha School District sent a letter to parents, urging them to watch what their children are doing online.
Baumann says criminal charges are possible, but at this point he sees all the students as victims. Authorities are investigating whether any adults were involved or whether any of the children were coerced.
