A 15-year-old male student from Indian Creek High School in Trafalgar, Ind. was accused of threatening four teen girls at the school and asking them to text him “explicit pictures of themselves.” One girl complied with the boy’s request. After receiving the nude image of the girl, the boy threatened to send the picture around if she didn’t send more.

The girl’s mom found that picture on her daughter’s cell phone. The mother contacted the school who in turn immediately contacted police, according to WTHR.

After the girl’s parent and police began investigating the incident on Dec. 17, the young bully was arrested and charged with intimidation and child pornography.

Police in Trafalgar say that the 15-year-old boy ultimately confessed to coaxing the girl to send him a nude photo, and also that he threatened her.

Trafalgar Police Chief Kurt Heminger said that "Ultimately in the end, you're gonna be caught and it's illegal to do what they're doing."

The 15-year-old boy was booked into the Johnson County Juvenile Detention Center and charged with intimidation and child pornography.

Trafalgar police reported that the boy sent letters of apology to all of the four girls he was accused of intimidating, including the one girl who texted him the nude photo.

Administrators at Indian Creek High School have been following the necessary procedures to have the boy expelled.

Police Chief Heminger went on to say that “"Most of these kids are doing this without thinking.”

“And they may think it's the norm right now, that it's okay and they won't be caught. But it is not okay and they are obviously being caught.
