A teen was arrested on charges of desecration of a venerated object after allegedly taking indecent photos of himself next to a Jesus statue, police in Pennsylvania said.
Everett Police said that the teen was arrested after posting the indecent photos of himself with the Jesus statue on Facebook.
The 14-year-old boy took the photos several months ago, next to the Jesus statue that was erected outside a building of the “Love in the Name of Christ” organization.
The teen will be tried in family court on a charge of desecration of a venerated object. Police charged the teen because they believe he knew that people who see the photo, would be outraged.
The teenager, whose name has not been released, could face up to two years in a juvenile prison if convicted.
