Teenager commits suicide after bullying b/c of sexting

01:18 Jul 8 2008 Cincinnati, OH, USA

The family of an Ohio girl who hanged herself after peers bullied her over a series of nude cell phone pictures will receive $154,000 as part of a settlement with her high school, which knew of the bullying against the youth but did not do enough to prevent it.

On vacation in Florida Jessica Logan sent an intimate photo of herself to her boyfriend in Ohio. When they later broke up he sent it to more than 70 people in the school, who tormented her for months including printing and posting naked photos she'd sent at the school. She began skipping school. She committed suicide in July 2008. As a result of her death, the Jessica Logan Act was passed in Ohio "regarding public schools' policies prohibiting harassment, intimidation, or bullying".
