Law enforcement officials address rise in sexting cases


Bossier Parish law enforcement agencies have banded together to present to tell teens and their parents — sexting is a crime and if you do it, they will find you.

“This behavior is not unique to Bossier Parish or any particular school, this is a nationwide social issue we must address,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.

Whittington held a press conference Wednesday morning, joined by officials or representatives from every other law enforcement office in the parish, in a show of unity. He addressed what he said is a rising case load of area teens sending each other nude, or partially nude, photos via text messages or social media sites.

He warned: “Don’t take it, don’t send it, don’t pass it on.”
