Juvenile charged in Trigg County Instagram bully case

TRIGG COUNTY, KY — A female minor has been charged with making harassing communications in connection to an anonymous Instagram account.

In November, the Trigg County Sheriff’s Department was informed of an Instagram account called Exposing TCHS.

The account posted photos of Trigg County High School students with vulgar captions.

Now a juvenile has been charged in connection to those posts.

Trigg County Sheriff Lieutenant Deputy Rick Johnson says the name of the person charged will not be released because she is a minor.

Johnson says she admitted to creating one of the accounts on Instagram. Her phone has been collected as part of a search warrant.

Johnson says she did posts on five people.

The minor has a summons to appear in court in the juvenile system.

Johnson has been in contact with the high school about punishment at school. The school suggested some form of community service.
