Sheriff Justin Smith Warns Parents About the Dangers of “sexting”

A recent case in Larimer County has Sheriff Justin Smith encouraging parents to speak to their children about the dangers of “sexting” and sharing inappropriate pictures on the internet. Smith shares a story about a 14-year-old girl in Larimer County who got caught up in sexting and advises parents to closely monitor a child’s phone and computer use.

In April of this year, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a 14-year-old girl, residing in unincorporated Larimer County, sending an inappropriate photograph of herself to an 18-year-old male posing as a 15-year-old boy from Hollywood, California. The girl believed the photograph would be a private matter between herself and the boy.

Once the male had received the photograph, he began blackmailing and extorting the teenage girl into committing and broadcasting additional sexual acts with herself and her 11-year-old sister. The male threatened the girl he would post the pictures on Facebook if she did not comply with his requests.

A joint investigation was initiated between investigators with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office and detectives from the Township of Hamilton Police Department, in New Jersey, which led to the identification of a possible suspect.
