Marshall school district looking into possible sexting situation

MARSHALL, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police are investigating a possible sexting situation between students inside Marshall High School.

Superintendent Dr. Randall Davis says pictures of nude girls have reportedly been sent between several male students.

Now, they are investigating to determine if those pictures are of their young female classmates.

The school is working with police at this point, gathering evidence and conducting interviews to find out if anything is criminal before it may go viral.

District leaders began the investigation Tuesday afternoon, after a concerned student told a teacher that boys have been texting nude photos to other students.

At least one image and message was captured by school officials, who immediately handed them over to police as evidence.

They are still investigating to determine if the image was that of a student.

Dr. Davis says the district plans to continue interviews with more students to get to the bottom of who started the texts, and if those in the pictures are students.

He says there's an even bigger lesson families should learn in this case.

"I think parents need to do this more and more and be responsible with their children and have more open conversations with them about their use of cellphones," Davis said.

The Marshall Police Chief would only confirm that they are investigating at this point, but offered no comment because this is an ongoing investigation.

The county prosecutor says cellphones can be considered computers in child pornography cases.

If police suggest any charges, he's not going to treat it like a joke.
