2 Wilson Middle School students face charges in sexting incident

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Two students have been arrested in a sexting incident at Wilson Middle School.

Parents that did not want to be identified tell FOX19 NOW a picture of a nude girl was sent to several seventh-grade students.

According to police, a female student sent the material to a male student, and a male student sent it to others.

The students who were arrested face charges of pornography/obscene material and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material.

A district spokesperson said the incident took place this past week.

Some parents who heard of the incident for the first time Tuesday night were curious why they hadn't been notified. The district says letters were not sent to parents because it is a matter that doesn't involve the school.

Hamilton police are handling the investigation.

The school says disciplinary action has been taken against the students involved but did not further clarify.
