Authorities have charged five teenagers in a sexting case at Franklin County High School.
Commonwealth's Attorney Cliff Hapgood says the charges include felony counts of using cell phones to possess and transmit pornography involving minors.
Hapgood says a female student took pictures of herself with a male student's cell phone in a bathroom at the high school. The male student then sent pictures to other students.
Superintendent Charles Lackey declined to comment. He says it's a law enforcement issue, and not a school issue.
