UD Student Pictures Found on Porn Website

Upper Dublin Middle School and High School students pictures have been found on a porn website.

Upper Dublin middle and high school student's pictures have been reported on pornographic websites, according to ABC Phliadelphia.

"A parent told Upper Dublin police that innocent photos posted on Facebook of eight to ten teenage girls who are friends have been copied without authorization, in effect hijacked, and have ended up on a commercial website called Jailbait.com."

Several of the girls are reported to be students at Sandy Run Middle School. However, students from other schools may also be involved.

The investigation into this claim is just beginning.

In an e-mail from the District Superintendent, Dr. Michael Pladus wrote, "This past week, however, has, again, served as a reminder of our need to continue to educate and be vigilant in regard to some of the risks associated with the Internet."

In an e-mail from Sandy Run Middle School principal, Denise Falconi, "From what we have been able to discern, there is nothing whatsoever indecent regarding the photographs, but the websites to which they have been uploaded are inappropriate and highly questionable."

She continued, "As part of the instructional program at Sandy Run Middle School,  we actively strive to educate our students regarding internet safety. All students across grades 6, 7, and 8 enrolled in the Computer Technology course with Mrs. Dorothy Weiss (a mandated course) are provided a full unit of instruction on internet safety and security. Health classes also address this concern."

 

On Wednesday, Dec. 5, the district will hold a special workshop on Internet and Cyber Safety at Sandy Run Middle School at 7 p.m. with guest speakers that include Detective Scarpato from the Upper Dublin Township Police Department, Detective Reape from the Montgomery Township Police Department, and Wib Gridley, an Information, Security, and Forensics Specialist.

The workshop is open to the entire district but only for adults, and no children or teens are permitted.

One of the girls probably posted it themselves. They love that kind of attention.

Yeah Adam Young, teen age girls just love the attention of being on porn sites. You have it all figured out...

Adam, that's as repugnant a comment as insinuating a girl is asking to be raped by the way she dresses! Shame on you for such an asinine comment!!!!

We live in a very scary world; the pics could've been pulled from anywhere. People take innocent pictures everyday but there are just as many pedophiles lurking around. No one is safe and we can't live our lives in a bubble.

@Dresher Mom, regardless of who posted these, it's evil and never the victims fault. The consequences of bullying may have tragic consequences: how many victims have felt the need to commit suicide following such? Even one is too many and we know the number far surpasses that. In any event, my comment was directed to Adam's: insinuating the girls posted the pics themselves for attention is exactly akin to saying the way a girl dresses is a pre-cursor to what may befall them. It's thinking on a bigger scale, not narrowly. We need to stop the problem, not be part of it.
