Teen-distributed child porn in Pa.

One student at Parkland High School in the Allentown, Pa., area started a group on Facebook called "Parkland … Where Pornstars Are Born." He's referring to two photos taken two months ago – one a naked photo of a girl taken by the girl herself and the other of another girl engaged in a sex act with a boy taken by someone else – that circulated around the school via cellphone, the Associated Press reports. "Authorities began investigating about two weeks ago after some students notified school administrators," the AP adds. It says a district attorney said that at least 40 students believed to have received the photos on their phones won't be prosecuted. Police have been trying to stop their circulation, but students the AP interviewed said the distribution has gone well beyond Allentown – "to Temple and Harvard universities, to a high school in Bethlehem, even to someone in Oregon." I doubt the girl who took the self-portrait knew the distribution of her photo (or that of the other girl) was potentially a federal felony. "About 3,200 students are enrolled at Parkland, a perennial football powerhouse that draws students from three largely wealthy townships outside Allentown." Here's coverage from the Allentown Morning Call and here's a letter from Parkland High School to parents.
