A South Side Catholic high school is dealing with allegations that sexually explicit images of students may have been circulated around the school.
Hales Franciscan has long stood as a place for young men to learn and grow. A decision to allow girls this year, broke 50 years of tradition at the Bronzeville catholic school.
And now, police trying to figure out if some boys here broke the law, by committing sexually related crimes against one of the newly admitted girls.
WGN received a tip that a male student had taken sexually explicit photos or made sexually explicit videos of himself and a female student then showed them to other students.
Chicago police confirmed the allegation. They released a statement saying “Through conversations with students, the school official determined that a more serious crime may have been committed.”
The police do not have the name of the female involved.
School president Jeffrey Gray said he could not talk about the allegations.
