(KMOV) – A group of Fort Zumwalt East High School students may face child porn charges after police say naked photos have been spreading around the school.

According to St. Peters police, East High administrators reported to authorities they recently got knowledge of girls at the school taking photos of themselves in various stages of undress. The photos were allegedly sent to boys at the school through text messages.

Police began investigating and on Wednesday confiscated several phones from an unknown number of students 16 years old and younger.

St. Peters police could not tell News 4 how many students were involved, but confirmed they are building a case of distribution of child pornography.

Charges are expected against the students in juvenile court in the coming weeks.
