DeWitt Jr. High janitor is sentenced to three months in jail.

Teens in danger of "sexting", sending inappropriate images to each other and/or strangers.

A 23-year-old Lansing man who worked as a junior high school janitor has been sentenced to three months in jail after police say he stole a girl's cell phone and "sexted" her friends.

John William Boggs pleaded guilty last month to larceny in a building and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Clinton County Circuit Court Judge Randy Tahvonen sentenced Boggs on Monday.

Boggs' attorney, John Maurer, declined comment to the Lansing State Journal.

Authorities say Boggs stole a cell phone from a bag in a girls locker room at DeWitt Junior High School on April 14. They say he then sent text messages to eight of the girl's friends listed in her contact list.
The text messages contained sexual innuendos and asked personal questions.

    He should have gotten worse than what he did. This was something degrading to the girls involved. I would call it a form of mental rape. As far as I'm concerned 6 months and community service isn't enough. They should put him on the sex offenders list also. This man is a predator.
