12 year-old girl faces child pornography charges for sending pic of her privates to 10 people

A 12-year-old girl Cave Creek girl could face criminal charges and other discipline after she was caught snapping a lewd photograph of herself and sending the image to at least 10 other students, police said Tuesday.

A school resource officer documented the incident Friday at Sonoran Trails Middle School, according to Phoenix police and the Cave Creek Unified School District.

The 12-year-old suspect took the cell phone of an 11-year-old classmate from a locker after school Thursday, took a photo of herself "below the waist," and sent the image along with a profane message to other students with the intention of embarrassing the 11-year-old victim, police said.

Police and school district officials confirmed that the 12-year-old girl was suspended from the school, near Carefree Highway and 60th Street.

The victim's cell phone was impounded. A report detailing the incident was sent to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office. Police recommended charging the 12-year-old with furnishing harmful material to minors, a felony.

"There could be serious repercussions," Phoenix police Sgt. Joel Tranter said. "It was a very foolish thing to do."

Tranter added that the girl who took the photo might not be prosecuted because of her age and the circumstances.

News of the cell phone incident was released as the Cave Creek Unified School District coped Tuesday with another sexually related situation.

Two boys from Desert Arroyo Middle School were expelled and formally charged by the County Attorney's Office with sex crimes after female students complained they had been groped and that the boys exposed themselves on campus in October.
