Police say four 15-year-old boys were involved in posting explicit photos of eight 14- and 15-year-old girls on the Internet. Authorities say ‘sexting’ is a growing problem in middle and high schools.

Four teenage boys in Yucaipa have been cited for posting nude and seminude pictures of their classmates on the Internet, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The case, which came to light Monday, involved eight girls ages 14 and 15 who attend Yucaipa High School’s 9th Grade Campus.

“The girls were taking photos of themselves and sending them to their friends,” said sheriff’s spokeswoman Arden Wiltshire. “They were voluntarily doing this, but it got out of control and the photos began circulating and someone posted them on the Internet.”
