DA: No felony in 'sexting' case

EAGLE POINT — The Jackson County district attorney's office says four southern Oregon teens won't face felony charges in a "sexting" case. Prosecutors have determined that the sexually explicit photos of minors the teens are accused of sending by text message don't constitute child sex abuse.

KDRV reports that one Eagle Point junior varsity cheerleader has been kicked off the squad for participating in the sexting.

However, Eagle Point High School says no other disciplinary action is planned because the photos were taken off school grounds.

Eagle Point Police Chief David Strand says the teens sent the photos to numerous students at the local high school.
