Little Rock FBI investigating NWA students sharing child porn, bestiality through social media

National / World

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The Little Rock FBI is investigating high school and middle school students in Washington, Benton, and Madison counties who are distributing child porn and bestiality images through social media.

Connor Hagan with the Little Rock FBI says students were using social media platforms like Snapchat to distribute child porn.

According to Hagan, the material was being shared in a joking matter. He also said the distribution at the school districts was taking resources away from “important, big cases” regarding child porn.

Hagan says the FBI is planning to partner with local school districts to bring to light the seriousness of possessing and distributing child porn.

KNWA/FOX24 has not heard from any school districts that are taking action to prevent the distribution of child porn.

Hagan says any possession or distribution of child porn is a felony federal offense and can lead to a minimum of 10 years in prison.
