A Kachemak Bay teenager could face criminal charges for allegedly sending nude photos of himself to his classmates on social media. The 15-year-old boy had allegedly requested naked pictures from fellow students living in Port Graham as well. Roughly 250 people live in the small roadless village nearly 20 miles from Homer.

A trooper dispatch posted Sunday said school district officials alerted authorities about the photos on Oct. 3. It's unclear how many students were involved.

The state Division of Juvenile Justice is reviewing the case and could file specific charges next week.

Due to the involvement of minors, authorities are releasing few details. Cases in the juvenile system are routinely sealed from public view.

It'll be up to a judge whether the 15-year-old is tried as an adult.
