Prosecutor sees long probe into Letcher Co. nude photos

WHITESBURG, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky prosecutor says he expects multiple arrests during an investigation into nude photos of minor girls being passed around on cellular phones.

Letcher County Attorney Jamie Hatton called the arrest last week of 19-year-old Koree T. Stewart "just the tip of the iceberg" of the probe into the sharing and distribution of nude photos involving teens in the area.

Hatton told The Mountain Eagle that he couldn't details of the investigation because juveniles are involved.

Stewart, a one-time basketball standout at Letcher County Central High School, is charged with distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. Jail records did not list an attorney.

Hatton said his office is mainly targeting individuals who are forwarding nude photos of juveniles to other people.
