A 14-year-old Norwalk student is facing charges after he allegedly posted inappropriate photos of a teacher at Brien McMahon High School and implied that she was having unprofessional relations with her students, according to police.
Police said the student used a smartphone app called Streetchat to post pictures of a Spanish teacher with sexually charged captions.
A school resource officer helped identify the student allegedly responsible. Police said the teen was charged with harassment, a misdemeanor offense, and was referred to the Juvenile Review Board.
While investigating the case, the school resource officer found other Streetchat posts from students at Brien McMahon that could be considered cyberbullying, including pictures of classmates with insulting or inflammatory captions, according to police.
Police said the Juvenile Review Board will hear the student's case. Officers plan to speak with students about social media conduct and are investigating other possible harassment cases on Streetchat.
