WENTZVILLE, Mo. (CBS St. Louis) – A local woman is in police custody after a picture of her and her 14-year-old daughter was shared throughout Rockwood School District.
In the photograph, both women were topless, according to The Smoking Gun. A probable cause report indicates that the mother and daughter “were covering up their nipples in the picture,” which was taken by the teenager’s sibling while the pair were in a hot tub.
Authorities additionally noted, “The picture was circulated throughout two high schools in the Rockwood School District.”
The unnamed son of the family was said to have been mocked by his classmates after the picture was shared with increasing frequency.
The mother – whose identity was withheld to protect her children – is facing one second-degree charge of endangering the welfare of a child, the documents obtained by The Smoking Gun indicate.
Her daughter will reportedly receive court-mandated counseling.
