The Livingston County sheriff's department has confiscated a dozen mobile phones after a 14-year-old girl took a cell phone photo showing her genitals and sent it to friends.

Sheriff Bob Bezotte tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell that the girl indicated she was "clowning around" over the summer when she took the photo, which also shows her face.

Bezotte says the Pinckney High School student sent the photo to three or four friends' phones. But authorities estimate it's gotten to more than 200 people since school resumed and students sought the photo.

The sheriff's department is seeking more phones containing the photo, and charges could be brought. Pinckney Community Schools Superintendent Dan Danosky says students also could be disciplined.
