Up to 12 Penn-Trafford students might be charged in 'sexting' case - Penn Township police are preparing to file criminal charges against several Penn-Trafford High School students accused of distributing fully or partially nude photos. Students who willingly snapped photos of themselves and texted them to others will be charged with a summary offense.

In May of staff at Rogers Middle School were told about inappropriate behavior from two concerned students and notified Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. In a memo prepared by the school's principal , presented to Geist in a meeting on May 2, a history of disturbing behavior is uncovered.
