DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. (PIX11/WTVR) – A mother in Virginia was so horrified at what she saw on her daughter’s tablet, she turned her 13-year-old in to authorities.

The mother, whose name is being withheld to protect the identity of her family, told PIX11 News sister station WTVR that she found nude photos of her daughter and other boys on the girl’s electronics.

“What scares me is, this is much bigger than we realize. How many others are doing this and you don’t realize it?” asked the Dinwiddie County mother of two.

She found the images after her other child heard voices in the girl’s bedroom about 4 a.m. She saw what her daughter was doing and confiscated her electronics.

None of the images showed their daughter with anyone else, but there were photos sent back and forth between the teen and boys. Her parents think the boys exchanging explicit content with their 13-year-old daughter could be as old as 18.

“Looking through the phone and the tablet we did find sexual pictures, conversations that were very inappropriate for her age,” the girl’s mom said.

Her parents said they called sheriff’s officials to protect their daughter, even though the admission could mean she faces criminal charges.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Lisa Caruso said there are other options for the teen, not necessarily going through the court system, such as a 12-week program that involves group classes and counseling.

The older teens, however, could face felony charges depending on how old they are determined to be.

    What a backstabbing piece of trash the mother is to publicly humiliate her own flesh and blood like this. Secondly, let the child grow! PRIVACY is a fundamental right every human being should respect. She should have talked with her child about this, not by attacking the PRIVATE actions of a confused hormonal 15 year old.

      I totally agree with her. There crimes being committed, serious crimes, if her pictures were being passed to older boys, and seems to be the case, it’s child pornography.
      What the mother should have done, is taken a belt and whipped her ass good! Then turn her in to the police.

      You’re a tool. This woman should be commended. Kids do dumb things and this is a good way to teach her lesson. As @jumbybird said, had these pics ended up on an 18 year old kids phone who didn’t know she was underage and he forwards them guess what, CP as jumby said. Now some 18 year old’s life is ruined because he has to register as a sex offender and will probably never land a decent job and all because of what, some idiotic 15 year old.

      Oh and jumby I agree she should have also caught an ass whipping lol

      First off she’s not 15 she’s 13. Secondly when your 13 year old child is sending and receiving nude pictures from people she doesn’t even know, some of whom are adults, that is dangerous not to mention illegal. What happens when she decides one day to meet one of these guys and gets herself kidnapped or worse, killed. You must not have children or you wouldn’t react how you did. God help you if you do have kids.

      Are you retarded? First she’s 13 not 15. Second it’s not public, that why you don’t know their names or what they look like. You sound perverted.

    She was so right to report this, just speaking to the child would have born no fruits. Now I am sure other kids a scrambing to delete delelte delete.

    This is the world we live in. You give your child a phone, tablet, laptop, or anything electronic with internet connection- it is 99% likely they will use it for a sexual purpose at some point. If you do not want your underage child doing this filth do not give them these devices in the first place.

    What a bunch of hysterical loons. They have done more damage to their daughter and her self confidence, not to mention her trust in her parents, than if they had just left her alone or privately disciplined her. Only idiots involve the police or their government into their personal lives. Morons.
