A Walker County 15-year-old was charged with a felony for allegedly posting pornography on a school website.

The LaFayette High School freshman, whose name has been withheld, was charged with computer trespassing, said Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson in a news release.

The charges stem from two incidents on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 when both the LaFayette High School and Walker County Board of Education websites were compromised and porn was posted, Wilson said.

Wilson said it cost the county thousands to repair and correct the IT system.

The teen has been suspended from school and will appear in Walker County Juvenile Court.
