12 Year Old Wesport, CT Student Charged with Distributing Nude Pic of Classmate


What are kids thinking these days? Better than that, what is society thinking in that it is ok to bombard kids with sex at a young age and not think that it will not desensitize them.

Do children, pre-teens and teens not understand that distributing naked pics of classmates and themselves is child pornography? Obviously not as a 12 year old middle school girl was charged with the distribution of a classmate in Westport, CT. The girl, whom police did not identify because she is a juvenile, was charged with second-degree breach of peace, which includes distributing “offensive, indecent or abusive material concerning any person.”

A 12-year-old Westport girl has been charged with distributing a nude photo of a classmate to fellow students.

The investigation began on May 12 when the incident was reported to Westport police after word circulated throughout Coleytown Middle School that a nude snapshot was taken during a video chat and distributed to others.

The girl is being referred to Juvenile Court in Norwalk on a charge of second-degree breach of peace, which involves the distribution of offensive and indecent material. Her name is not being released because of her age.

The arrest comes amid growing worries among parents about teenagers snapping naked pictures of themselves on their cell phones and sending them to their boyfriends and girlfriends.

Girl, 12, Accused Of E-Mailing Nude Picture Of Classmate

If one ever needs to know why this type of stuff goes on with teens and preteens, one only needs to look at the excuses provided. Some how, the 12 year old is innocent because she was singled out. Because others did not get charged, that makes this specific 12 year old innocent. Brilliant!!! What more should we expect from a defense attorney.

“This is a 12-year-old girl who was unfairly singled out here,” said the girl’s attorney, Mark Sherman. “She wasn’t the only one to send e-mails out here.”

Here are some rather important words that parents should read and take to heart when it comes to their kids. It is your job parents to properly raise Buffy and Skippy in the right way with values.

Psychologist Dr. David Greenfield said teenagers share racy images of themselves and other kids because they can.

“Kids have always played pranks, but what’s happened is we’ve desensitized the sexual act and the experience and exposure to sexual acts,” he said. “Plus with the digital technology, it’s easy for them to have access and transmit this information.”

Greenfield said the high-tech pranks are devastating for victims and a wake-up call for parents.

      At least technically, a 12-year-old girl isn’t even a teenager yet.

      Was the photo of another girl or of a boy? It doesn’t say, only that it was of a classmate.

      In any case, it’s worth noting that Westport is in the ritzy part of Connecticut. Lots of Wall Street types live there and commute to NYC … and, of course, less lofty people do as well.

      My questions:

      a. what kind of supervision do these kids have?
      b. do they get everything they want? In my day, back in the Stone Age, no kid of my acquaintance HAD a camera. (Digital cameras hadn’t been invented yet in any case.) Photos had to be developed.

      It would be nice if there were some sort of social agency that sets standards of conduct, since apparently this has been abrogated to the schools. I guess parents are too busy these days, or too indifferent, to teach kids such archaic concepts as right and wrong.

      So where, in our society, can they get lessons on such things? Hmm … how many public figures seem to have any vestiges of decency or integrity?

      We thought that, as a society, we could play fast and loose with the lengthy, arduous concepts of setting an example and showing how life should be led. I guess we’re seeing the results all around us, every day…. He who cashes out, wins, is the rule of our society today. The con artist is the one who is revered.

      Anyone want to join me in suggesting that, for certain crimes, and at certain ages, we revive the old Puritan custom of putting people in the stocks, with the goal of public humiliation?

      And, if that doesn’t work, bringing back the horsewhip?

      Oh, I’m sorry, we’re too “enlightened.” Just look around you and you’ll realize it.

      There are many things wrong with the kids. Back in my stoneage day if we 2 Christmas presents it was a banner year. We got to watch flipper and lassie. If we made a ruckus in a store we got a good ass whoopin. Now back to the future the kids get everything they want and do not have to work for it, they get to watch sex in the city and desperate housewives. And if they make a commotion that get to tell their parents if u hit me I am calling child youth services. Well I will take the stone age where there was respect for your elders and kids could not wait to go outside and play. OHHHHH the good ole days

      Oh MAN Tim THANK YOU for making me relive my childhood !!! I will no doubt have nightmares tonight !!! Man it was hard being a kid back then !!! I wonder what all these spoiled lil punks are going to be when they grow up (if) You should see how College kids act !!! I live on the edge of a college town and see it first hand.

    8. tim on June 26th, 2008 8:42 am

      Hey Buster, Did u have go in when the street lights came on? I laugh as I write this. when those lights came on all us kids scattered. As for College kids today they are animals no respect for anything. I live in Florida and will not go to bars on weekends as it is a mass of inhumanity. By the way do u ever have children call u by your first name? I would never have thought to do that when I was a kid, Mom had a pretty mean paddle. I would hide it and low and behold a new one appeared. hahahhahha

      If I called an adult by there first name my cheek got red really fast, Embarassing yes but only after the slap !!! I think bed time was around 7:30 it was either after the flintstones or before gilligans island, Sometimes it was still light out, Yes this sucked !!! We got 50 cents a week for allowance and two buck a day if I went to work with my dad. We got real creative and fixed things up or made inventions in the garage. I got even with my dad my tearing up the garage and messing up the workbench !!! Some times after a day of hard work my dad had to come home and fix things I took apart. How did you guys get even with yer folks ???

      This story above is so disheartening…..why should we be surprised??

      It all comes from the home environment and how children are RAISED. Two-parent home or Single Parent, shared homes…no matter.

      Point being—-WHERE ARE THE PARENTS? WHY ARE THEY NOT MORE INVOLVED IN THEIR CHILDREN’S LIVES AND UPBRINGING? Where are the positive role models? All things are achieved by a strong balance of love and proper guidance, discipline only when necessary. No paddles or straps (DSS will be called in….give me a break!) violence is not necessary. Teach your children well……remember the song???

      Stories like these just make us Gen X’ers shake our heads. Imagine those older than us? Are you kidding me? They did get a belt or a switch from a tree….We got love and priviledges suspended when we acted inappropriately…today- our youth is encouraged since there is not enough of the above questions being asked of them and holding THEM ACCOUNTABLE for their behavior and actions. I BLAME THE POOR PARENTING!!!! Wake up America! I am sometimes ashamed at what I witness in public….so all one can do is raise your own children correctly in the hopes that when they become parents—the morals and values instilled will be passed on to future generations and we will live to not only be proud of our own offspring, but our future grandchildren as well.
