The Sheriff’s Department confirmed Tuesday that six Twentynine Palms High School students, all between the ages of 14 and 15, are being referred to the District Attorney’s office for possible charges related to possession and distribution of child pornography for a sexting video. Sheriff’s Captain Rich Boswell told Z107.7 News that because the student in the sexually explicit video is a minor, the video is legally considered child pornography. The student sent the video to her boyfriend’s phone and the boy then forwarded it on to some of his friends. Boswell explained that under the laws concerning child pornography, it is a crime to possess the video and to forward it, because of the girl’s age. Investigators expect to send the case to the district attorney this week for review, and the DA will make the decision whether to prosecute the students for possession and distribution of child pornography.
