High school student arrested for sending 13-year-old girl sexually explicit photos, texts


KINGSTON – An 18-year-old male student from Shokan was arrested by the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office for inappropriate behavior toward a 13-year-old female student at a local school.
The defendant, whose name police did not release, allegedly sent sexually explicit photographs and text messages to the girl and solicited nude photos of her. He also allegedly invited the victim to have sex with him. His name was withheld because he may be eligible for youthful offender status.
The alleged perpetrator is in the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail.
