The Hodgenville Police Department are actively investigating child pornography exchanged between students at Larue County Middle and High Schools.
“We received a report last week of a 14-year-old that was possibly selling nudes of another 14-year-old. However, the victim in this case was 11 and 12 when she took the pictures,” Chief Richardson stated. The pictures are believed to have been exchanged back in August or September of last year. Chief Richardson noted that no pictures were taken on school premises, although money was exchanged at school.
Currently, one minor is being charged with possession and distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. “We’re looking at B felonies, but because the suspect is so young, that (case) will stay in district court and stay in the juvenile system.
Everyone involved, including parents, have been notified by Hodgenville Police. This investigation is ongoing.
