High school students are known for being rowdy and having a fondness for pranks, but two students at Swansboro High School in North Carolina have gone too far.
These two sixteen year olds, Joshua Anderson and Brittney Rennee Luckenbaugh, catfished their French teacher. Their scheme resulted in him sharing nude photos of himself with them.
They used a fake social media account and contacted their French Teacher, David Laughinghouse, tricking him into thinking that they were someone else.
This is how they got their hands on the X-rated photo of their 52-year old teacher. That was not enough for them, as they shared that picture with other students at their school.
Two pair are no being charged with misdemeanor disclosure of private images after being taken into custody last week. Their bail was set for $5000 each.
Police remain vigilant after this incident and are looking into other potential incidents of catfishing.

Brian Joshua Anderson and Brittney Rennee Luckenbaugh, both 16, were charged with misdemeanor disclosure of private images, according to the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office.
Officers said the teens used a fake social media account to contact David Laughinghouse, a French teacher at Swansboro High School in North Carolina.

They were taken into custody last week and each released on $5,000 bail. “This investigation remains an active one and we are potentially looking for other incidents of catfishing,” Sheriff Hans Miller told the Jacksonville Daily News.
