HARRISON, Ohio (AP) - A prosecutor in southwest Ohio has decided not to seek criminal charges against any students after an investigation into sexting at a high school.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters says the matter will be handled by parents, police and Harrison High School.

Harrison police began investigating in January after getting complaints that students were texting explicit photos of themselves and others. Police say they confiscated and will destroy seven electronic devices found to have inappropriate photos of minors.

All of the students involved had to attend a January presentation by the prosecutor’s office on the dangers of this type of behavior.

Deters says felony charges would not have benefited the students involved. He says it’s better left to parents, police and the schools rather than the courts.
