Three teenage girls in northwest Iowa are in trouble for sending nude pictures of themselves to a man who has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.

The Associated Press reports the charges were filed in Buena Vista County after the girls, ages 16 and 17, sent nude photos to 19-year-old Alex Case. Iowa law means it is a felony to send nude images of minors and it’s a misdemeanor to possess them.

The girls in the case are being treated as victims and defendants and have been charged as adults with exploitation of a minor according to Buena Vista County Sheriff Gary Launderville.

Case’s next court appearance has not been scheduled.
