MAGNA — A Cyprus High School student was charged Tuesday with having pictures of nude females on his phone and sexual battery of at least one classmate.
The 18-year-old student, from Magna, is charged in 3rd District Court with dealing in harmful materials to minors, a third-degree felony; sexual battery, a class A misdemeanor; and accessing pornographic material on school property, a class B misdemeanor.
On March 22, the student asked a 16-year-old classmate sexually related questions, and "asked her repeatedly if he could grope her breasts and she repeatedly refused," according to charging documents.
The student also "poked" the girl on the side of her chest and showed her pictures of a nude female on his phone, the charges state.
A cellphone seized from his bedroom the next day by police "contained photos of nude females of various ages," according to charging documents.
Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley said the student "was given Safe School level discipline, meaning he has been removed from the school and is receiving district level discipline."
Prosecutors are requesting he be held on $25,000 bail and have no contact with his victims or other minors if he is released.
