Cheraw High student exonerated
The Cheraw Police Department today issued a statement that completely exonerated a 15-year-old male student at Cheraw High School who allegedly showed improper behavior toward some of the female students at the school.
“Once we received the electronic data from the search warrants and all of the data from the electronic devices, the investigators were able to track the snap chat and Instagram messages back to a single address which was located in the City of Cheraw,” the report states.
According to the report, a 15-year-old female was subsequently interviewed and confessed to creating social media accounts that appeared to belong to the male.
“Once these accounts were created, she began to send messages to the juvenile female victims asking for nude photos. She also confessed to sending the nude male photos to the victims,” the report states.
She will be charged in Family Court as a juvenile for multiple counts of possession of child pornography, disseminating child pornography and producing child pornography.
More information will be posted to Breaking News as details become available.
