No charges for boys posting degrading photos

There are calls for harsher penalties to be handed down to a group of school boys who posted explicit photos of drunk teenage girls online.

The students at an unnamed secondary school performed sexually degrading acts on the girls and shared photos of the behaviour on a private Facebook page.

Police have let them off with a warning.

Principals' Association executive member Patrick Walsh is calling for criminal prosecution to stop the behaviour.

"There are a small group of students, particularly boys, who think that they are immune from prosecution, resist all of our efforts to get them to change their behaviour," says Mr Walsh.

The incident earlier this year is drawing comparisons to the Roast Busters scandal of 2013.
