Schoolboys caught 'sexting' - A group of Rotorua teenagers have been counselled by police after inappropriate "sexting" messages were discovered on a boy's mobile phone.
It has prompted warnings for parents to remind their kids about the risks of technology and monitor the usage of Mobile phones and computers.
Sexting is sending sexually explicit messages, photos or videos via mobile phones. It's an issue on the rise around the world.
Some Australian teens reported exchanging naked images of themselves as they enter relationships - as a form of "insurance" to ensure they can retaliate if anything inappropriate is passed on about them.
A Rotorua police officer was called to investigate inappropriate images found on a schoolboy's mobile phone last month.  A teacher saw photographs on the device of what they believed to be girls under 16 in various states of undress.

'Sexting' Could Land Verdigris Teens On Sex Offender List – Police in Verdigris are hauling teenagers into the police station to warn them that sending partially nude and totally nude photos of themselves to others is illegal and they can be arrested for it.
Detective Hester says what really worries him is the age these kids are starting sending these graphic photos, as young as 12 and 13 years old.
Plus, he worries about the social consequences of these photos coming back to haunt these kids in years to come. He says we all did stupid things as teenagers, but they weren't recorded.
"These younger kids, just don't understand how and when it can come back to affect their lives," he said. "They want to run for office or have a child, the thing pops up."
Police say it's a huge problem: kids taking pictures of themselves or each other, undressed and sending them to a boyfriend or girlfriend.
That alone is considered child porn. The problem is when a break-up happens and these pictures get spread to 300 or 400 people at a time and downloaded onto the internet, sometimes for revenge.
Then they spread to other countries and before you know it, that intimate picture meant for one is seen by millions and there's no way to get it back, no way to stop it, it's out there and accessible forever.  Read More>>

High school students called in over "sexting" incident - Some students were brought into Wells High School Principal Jim Daly and Vice Principal Eileen Sheehy's offices three weeks ago after naked pictures of at least one student were sent over a computer outside of school.
The issue was brought to light by a parent who contacted the Coast Star, who has asked to remain anonymous, using the pseudonym "Pat."
Pat said a 15-year-old boy was caught with photos of a naked WHS freshman girl on his iTouch, and the photo had circulated between at least five of his male friends.
Pat also said that after further discussing the matter with one of the children involved, at least four other girls were alleged by the teen to have sent naked pictures to boys over the school year.
Sheehy declined to comment on how many students were involved in the incident, but said it was a mix of boys and girls. She said those students were educated about the harms of sending naked photos of themselves or others, and informed that it is against the law if they are under 18.  Read More>>

One in four pupils admit swapping porn images of themselves by text message – A disturbing number of children – some as young as 11 – are taking pornographic images of themselves and swapping them with friends via text messages or the internet, experts warn.
A survey reveals that 40 per cent of 11- to 14-year-olds have used their mobile phones or computer to send pictures of themselves or receive naked or topless images of friends.
And more than half of youngsters who sent these images – a trend known as ‘sexting’ – did so knowing the pictures would be passed on to a number of recipients.
And four in ten of the 11,000 children surveyed thought it was ‘appropriate’ to circulate pictures of topless girls in their school.
Outraged parents have urged others to monitor their children’s mobile phones and internet use. The proportion of young children “sexting” is shocking. The driver of it is boys’ attitudes to online porn, which is now far too accessible. Read More>>

Boy of 14 accused of child pornography after convincing girl his age to send him sex text - A 14-year-old boy in Kentucky has been accused of child pornography in a federal court case set to make legal history.
The case in Kentucky involves the unnamed boy allegedly distributing a 10-second sexting video clip of a girl, also 14, that she made of herself.
The girl apparently had a crush on the boy, who said he would only befriend her if she made an intimate film of herself and sent it to him on her cell phone.
She sent it to him and, a few weeks later, a friend of the boy allegedly convinced him to transfer the cell phone video to his computer.
From there, it was a small step to uploading the clip on to the Internet.
The complaint said the video was 'received by students and was in many cases uploaded by the high school students to their iPods in order to share the sexually explicit video with as many students as possible'.  Read More>>
