Fairfax Co. police investigating allegations of students sharing nude photos of classmates

Posted: Updated:
McLEAN, Va. -

Fairfax County police are investigating a makeshift online porn site after a receiving a tip that it was created by students at McLean High School.

Officers served a search warrant at the home of at least one student after receiving the tip last week about boys sharing explicit photos of their female classmates on Dropbox.

No charges have been filed, but the school says it is cooperating with the investigation.

One former student who still has a younger sister attending McLean High told FOX 5, "They should be punished, especially if they did it without the girls' permission and I don't think they had the girls’ permission."

Taki Gikakis, whose son attends the school, said, "I heard a sophomore and senior are involved and the sophomore is the kingpin."

He added, "If the allegations are true, it would be pretty upsetting."

Principal Ellen Reilly sent the following letter home to parents:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

You may be hearing rumors as well as media reports about an ongoing "sexting" investigation being conducted by the Fairfax County Police Department involving some of our students. My office has been cooperating with the police in this investigation and we will continue to do so.

As we have communicated with you in the past, the dangers of sexting aren't always well known and when you find out about them, it may be too late. The consequences of sexting are severe and could either ruin a reputation or a life. It should not be treated as a harmless prank.

Be sure to keep a close eye on what your teens are involved with, especially the applications on their cell phones and computers. Don't avoid this method of prevention because you think it makes you look like you don't trust your children. At the end of the day, it's better to be safe than sorry. What most young people do not realize is that the production, possession, and distribution of explicit photos of minors, even if they are self-produced, may be illegal. Sexting shouldn't be brushed off as some innocuous form of communication between young people.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Sincerely,

Ellen Reilly

McLean High School, Principal
