DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. – A Virginia mother was so shocked by what she found on her daughter’s cell phone she called police.

WTVR reported the 13-year-old girl’s parents discovered she was sending nude pictures of herself and receiving them from other teens on her phone and tablet.

Officials said the teen’s parents found out about the situation when another one of their children heard voices in her bedroom at about 4 a.m.

Parents took the teen’s electronics and said they were quite shocked when they searched through them.

The 13-year-old girl’s mother said she decided to call police when she saw an older teen, a boy who was 17 or 18, had requested to have sexual relations with their daughter.

According to WTVR, the parents said they involved deputies because they wanted to protect their daughter even though they knew she too could face criminal charges.
