LCSO: Cape Coral student caught sexting on district laptop

Published: Updated:

CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Investigators say a Caloosa Middle School student used a district-issued laptop to send naked images of himself to a classmate.

The video was sent last week, but discovered by school staff Wednesday, according to deputy reports. A school resource officer was notified around 1:30 p.m. and spoke to a female recipient who could not specify the day she received the images.

Students grades 6 through 12 are required to sign user-agreement forms to use the Google Chromebooks, which are part of GlobalLee, a Lee County school district initiative to make lessons interactive. According to the district website, parents should monitor their student’s activity in order to protect that child beyond built-in safety nets.

“The District utilizes Internet filtering systems to reduce exposure to inappropriate content – even when the device is used at home,” the website says. “Parents should be advised that no filtering system blocks 100% of inappropriate content, and we highly recommend that student use of Internet be monitored by parents.”

The girl said she was “not offended” by the video, according to deputy reports. She exchanged messages about the explicit video with tee student, deputies said.

The male student was issued a notice to appear in court for alleged sexting.
