Five teens were arrested on sexting charges for sharing a nude photo of a fellow student on social media, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

School officials notified a sheriff’s deputy after learning about an Instagram page where the photo was shared. An investigation by Sheriff’s Det. Jared Marshall resulted in the seizure of five cell phones and the arrests of three 14-year-old girls, one 15-year-old girl, and one 16-year-old boy. All were charged with sexting.

The investigation is ongoing.
