Tulsa, Okla. - A Union High School student is behind bars this morning. He faces child pornography charges.
18-year-old Jonathan DeVito was arrested yesterday afternoon at Union High School by Tulsa County Sheriffs deputies in reference to an incident that was sexual in nature.
DeVito's arrest and booking report states that DeVito admitted to school administrators that he took a picture of a mentally challenged sixteen-year-old juvenile student using the restroom. DeVito then shared the picture with friends on Twitter.
