Orange County prosecutors are considering whether any laws were broken when a UCI police dispatcher allegedly photographed local high school water polo players and then posted the images on gay pornographic websites, authorities said.
If the Orange County prosecutors find laws were broken they will launch a full investigation, spokeswoman Farrah Emami said.
“Right now, we’re considering the circumstances and looking at the law,” Emami said. “It’s not an investigation yet,” and it may not become one, she added.
The photographs were taken at public events, so they may not constitute any violation of the law, authorities said. The gray area comes in with the posting of those images on websites intended for pornographic images, Emami said.
