NYLON – Three Greece Athena High School students will be charged with endangering the welfare of a child in connection with two bullying incidents at the high school.
According to news partner 13WHAM, at a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Greece Police announced the three students were being charged as juveniles in connection with the incidents at Greece Athena High School.
One of the three students has also been charged with a felony count of possession of an obscene sexual performance by a child. The charges are related to two separate bullying incidents on two separate dates. Both of the incidents took place at the school and were captured on video, according to Greece Police.
A student brought the incidents to the attention of the administration, according to police. Due to the ages of the students, their names will not be released to the public, according to Greece Police. According to Greece Police Chief Patrick Phelan, the victim is upset because the case is “traumatizing.”
“All of the attention given to it isn’t making it any easier,” said Chief Phelan. “We really need to talk with our kids about social media. I don’t know if as kids they understand the power they have.”
Police said some media outlets exaggerated the facts and told “half truths” about the allegations. Police added there is no reason to believe there are any additional victims.
Chief Phelan added that parents need to discuss behavior on social media with their children. The case will be handled in Monroe County Family Court.
