Marquette Teen Sexting Investigation

Marquette Police are just wrapping up a month-long investigation into a another crime that is growing across the country.

It’s a sexting case involving young local teenagers.

The 13-and-14-year-olds reportedly sent provocative photos of themselves to other teens.

The Marquette County Prosecutor’s office issued 4 felony juvenile petitions regarding this incident.

Sexting is sending sexually explicit images or messages from a cell phone.

Sending or possessing any sexually explicit material is against the law.

It becomes a felony if the material involves children.

Law enforcement agencies say parents should monitor their children’s phones and computers to prevent this type of activity.
