DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. — A mother in Virginia was shocked at what she recently found on her daughter’s cell phone and tablet, according to WTVR.
The parents of the 13-year-old girl discovered she had been sending and receiving naked pictures of other teens using her tablet.
The family’s name was not released to protect their identity.
The mother said she became aware of the situation when their other child overheard voices in her bedroom around 4 a.m. When the parents confiscated her electronics and started going through them, they were shocked.
None of the photos showed the girl with anyone else, but the mother said it was clear there were pictures being sent back and forth with boys.
The mother decided to call deputies when she discovered that an older boy, 17 or 18, requested sex from the young girl.
The parents say they decided to call authorities in order to protect their daughter, even though that meant she could face criminal charges.
