Parents Turn Their 13 Year Old Daughter into Sheriff’s Office after Finding Nude Pics on Cell Phone & Tablet in Dindiddie County, VA
TOUGH LOVE … WHEN WILL TEENS GET A CLUE ABOUT SEXTING?
Dindiddie County, VA parents have turned their 13 year old daughter into Sheriff’s deputies after they found nude pictures on her cell phone and tablet. The teens parents were shocked to discover that their daughter was sending and receiving nude pics. Exactly what part about creating and disseminating child porn don’t these teens quite understand? Even though it is possible their daughter could face criminal charges, they did this in order to protect her. The mother, whose name remains anonymous to protect the identity of the 13 year old, said that she is particularly concerned about whether the people she shared photos with were adults. The soon to be 8th grader may not necessarily face charges and go through the court system, but instead go through a program called diversion in the juvenile justice system. However, any older teens involved could most certainly be facing felony charges depending on their ages.
The parents discovered their 13-year-old daughter, who is about to enter the eighth-grade, had been sending and receiving naked pictures of other teens using her tablet.
And the deeper they dug, the worse it got. In fact, things got so bad they called in the sheriff’s department to investigate.
“What scares me is, this is much bigger than we realize. How many others are doing this and you don’t realize it,” asked the Dinwiddie County mother of two.
FOX 4 sister station CBS 6 News is not revealing her name to protect her family’s identity.
The parents became aware of what their 13-year-old was doing, when their other child heard voices in her bedroom around 4 a.m.
The parents then confiscated the electronics.
“Looking through the phone and the tablet we did find sexual pictures, conversations that were very inappropriate for her age,” she said.
While none of the nude photo’s showed their daughter with anyone else, there were pictures being sent back and forth with other boys.
“Everybody wanted to be her friend, because according to these people, she was cool now,” she said.
