SALISBURY, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) – A local teen faces possible child pornography charges after being accused of posting nude pictures of his teenage ex-girlfriend on a fake Facebook account he had recently created.
Salisbury police say a 19-year-old man posted nude pictures of an ex-girlfriend, who sent the pictures when she was 14.
The pictures in question were first brought to the attention of police when the mother of the teenage girl received a call from a friend who informed her of what looked like nude Facebook pictures of her daughter. As police got involved, it was determined that the girl, 14 at the time, had sent them to her boyfriend, who was 16 at the time he received the pictures.
According to the report, a recent argument between the two led the 19-year-old boyfriend to create a fake Facebook account and post the pictures to his fake page.
Salisbury police have indicated that the boyfriend would face child pornography charges since the girl was a juvenile at the time she took the pictures of herself. To this point, no charges have been filed against the teenage male.
The investigation remains ongoing.
