Pickerington Schools is working with law enforcement to investigate the origins of a video that has been circulating on social media which allegedly shows a minor performing an illicit sexual act involving another minor. This video has been shared among some students in our district and we're told in several area school districts as well. As police continue to work on this investigation, we will share more details with you as available and appropriate.
To our students - please keep in mind that disseminating this video, or any other videos, pictures or media of any kind showing child pornography is illegal, and if convicted, you could face up to 20 years in federal prison, and/or be labeled a sex offender! Remember, that one mistake on social media could haunt you for the rest of your life, so always be careful what you view and especially what you share.
Thank you to all of the students and parents who reached out to district staff to make us aware of this disturbing video. You are champions for helping us protect students and you make us extremely proud!
