One of the high school students at the center of a "sexting" controversy in Pennsylvania has agreed to a partial settlement of a civil rights suit that said her constitutional rights were violated when a principal confiscated her cell phone, found nude images she had taken of herself and turned over the phone to prosecutors. Under the terms of the settlement, the school district agreed to pay $33,000, but admitted to no wrongdoing. However, the plaintiff has not settled her claims against the county DA's office.
