Owen Sound Police have charged a youth who shared explicit images of another young person on social media with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Police say a complaint came in yesterday from a young person who reported another youth was electronically sharing intimate pictures that had been sent to the suspect by the young victim.

City Police say the suspect was sharing the images with friends on a social media application and threatened the victim he or she would continue to share the photos.

Police arrested the youth suspect for Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography.

Officers say the accused in the case is older than the young victim -- neither can be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The accused youth was held in custody for a bail hearing today on charges of possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and breach of recognizance.
