SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- A 16-year-old suburban San Antonio high school student is charged with evidence tampering. That’s after school officials said he swallowed a digital memory card containing at least one photo of a nude underage girl.
The incident happened Sept. 24 at O’Connor High School in Helotes. Northside school district spokesman Pascual Gonzalez tells the San Antonio Express-News the boy was showing a nude photo to classmates when a vice president confronted him. The boy took the memory card from his smartphone and swallowed it.
Gonzalez says the photo may have been of a female student, who sent it to her then-boyfriend. He said that couldn’t be confirmed because the card wasn’t recovered, but there were enough witnesses to bring the charge.
The student is now in alternative school.
