TWINSBURG – A 17-year-old was arrested in connection with nude photos of Twinsburg High School students found online.

The teen was charged with nine counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, Twinsburg police said. That’s a second-degree felony.

In January, an officer received a tip about a Tumblr page with photos of Twinsburg teens. Detectives contacted Tumblr to remove the photos and they were taken down that same day.

Tumblr is a website that allows photos and videos to be shared in a blog format.

There was a warrant issued on Jan. 29, requiring Tumblr to release information about any accounts related to the page where the photos were posted.

The suspect has no prior criminal record. If charged as an adult, he could face up to eight years behind bars.
