ST. CLAIRSVILLE -

Agents from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations were at St. Clairsville High School on Tuesday interviewing students believed to be involved in multiple sexting incidents at the school.

The agents will be in St. Clairsville on Tuesday and Wednesday interviewing students, according to Belmont County Prosecutor Dan Fry.

The case was removed from local authorities and handed over to the BCI to avoid the appearance of impropriety and favoritism when the allegations first broke back in 2013.
