EUGENE – A teenager who circulated nude photographs of girls at North Eugene High School has avoided a prison sentence but must register as a sex offender.
The Register-Guard reported the teen told the court Monday he knows what he did was wrong and he’ll never do it again.
He pleaded guilty to using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct. In addition to registering as a sex offender, the now 18-year-old is banned from contacting underage females during his five years on probation.
The police investigation began in February, after a student told an officer that the teen had shown her nude photos of classmates that he had on an iPod.
A prosecutor said the teen offered marijuana to fellow students in exchange for photos.
A group of male students had access to the images. Three students were charged with crimes.
