An investigation continues into how a topless photo of a Phoenixville Area High School female student made its way around to different students in a text message, causing police and administrators to take action.
Superintendent of Schools Alan D. Fegley refused to comment on the student’s age, grade or any other details surrounding the situation, but said officials learned of the sexting situation Feb. 4 and notified the Phoenixville Police Department that day.
“It’s a very unfortunate situation,” Fegley said. “An unfortunate mistake was made.”
An investigation by school authorities, Phoenixville and other police agencies continues to determine whether criminal charges are warranted, he said.
“It can be a crime,” he said.
