Washington, June 29 (ANI): A woman in the US has been accused of doctoring a pornographic photo of a woman having sex with a dog by putting the face f a 13-year-old girl in its place.
Danette Stark, 37, from Utah, appeared in court on June 28 to face 18 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, who was attending the same middle school as her daughter.rosecutors said she created the image, put it into fliers and distributed them at Northwest Middle School in Salt Lake City.
Stark was spotted on surveillance video entering the seventh-grade bathroom at the school on the second to the last day of classes.
Salt Lake County District Attorney Lohra Miller said a custodian found the fliers in the bathroom and contacted local authorities, and Stark admitted that she made 30, but police recovered only 18 of them.
"If anyone sees copies of these they need to turn them over to police immediately," Fox News quoted Miller as saying.
"If they distribute it, make copies or put on the Internet, they are committing a crime of distributing pornography under Utah law," she stated.
Stark allegedly told police that she believed the unidentified girl "wronged" her in some way.
Police say Stark found the photos on the Internet and placed the fliers, which included derogatory comments directed toward the girl, into several students' lockers in addition to the bathroom.
Miller said that this is the district's first case of social networking bullying, and they are trying to keep the 13-year-old girl's identity as private as possible.
"She is traumatized by the event," Miller said.
"We are trying to keep her privacy protected as much as possible to help keep her life as normal as possible," she added. (ANI)
