Teen arrested after nude video of her leaked on Kik
Lawyers for a Newnan High School student say she’s being punished for standing up for herself.
Jones said she learned from friends that nude video was circulating through the social medium called Kik and at school she poured water on her ex and cursed him out before a teacher led her to the principal’s office.
Her mother says Jones was suspended a day. The mother and daughter were summoned back to school on Tuesday where Jones was arrested on charges of a misdemeanor disruption of a school charge.
“I started crying ‘cause I just couldn’t believe that they would arrest her,” Jones’ mother said.

Quick thought: It is interesting that the girl was arrested for throwing water on her ex, who circulated the video without her permission, and yet there is no mention about any punishment for him, either from the school or local authorities. Whenever such leaks happen, it is usually the victim who is publicized and punished while the offending parties, those who violated the privacy, remain nameless and blameless. One also has to wonder if arrests happen whenever other disputes and pranks take place between students (e.g. physical altercations, cruel pranks, etc.). I worry about the lesson this young girl might carry with her into her future: standing up to bully activity, including violation of your privacy and rights to your body, results in punishment, so just stay quiet.
