At Least 100 Students Involved in Sexting Scandal at Colorado High School.
At least 100 students at a high school in Cañon City, Colorado, exchanged nude photos of each other on their smartphones, PEOPLE confirms.
Officials only plan to press charges if “absolutely necessary,” Fremont County District Attorney Tom LeDoux said, adding that it’s possible no charges are filed at all.
But it could take a month to sort offenders from victims, Cañon City Police Capt. Jim Cox said: “We’re not out to hang every kid. We don’t want the victims to think they did something wrong, but we do want to know what happened.”
The students involved, some of whom are as young as 13, used “vault apps” to share the photos with each other, authorities said. One such app looks like a regular calculator app, but when a user types in a code, it takes them to a hidden page where they can store photos, videos and other personal information.
