Sexting Dangers: How It Can Affect Young People


Eric Reamy, the 51-year-old Glen Rock Police Det. officer who once worked to warn teens against sending naked pictures, has been accused of sexting two teen girls he was investigating.



The New Jersey police officer and married father of three allegedly sent inappropriate messages to a 17-year-old girl. The girl's mother found the messages on her daughter's phone and told the police.

Once the police started investigating the detective, they found messages between Reamy and a 14-year-old girl whom the officer persuaded to send him naked pictures of herself. According to Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli, Reamy sent "two naked photos of his private parts" to the young girl.

Both girls were considered to be under Reamy's supervision as he was investigating juvenile complaints involving them.

On Wednesday, Reamy was charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child. The investigation will continue as police determine if Reamy was sexting any other young girls. Molinelli said:

"We will most definitely be reviewing every juvenile this sergeant had contact with in Glen Rock."


In 2009, Reamy worked to warn children about sending nude pictures via text after a nude picture of a middle school girl circulated among her classmates.
