WHEATON – One of two former Edison Middle School students accused of creating lewd pictures of classmates and teachers will undergo a court-ordered psychosexual exam, according to DuPage County State's Attorney's Office spokesman Paul Darrah.

The 14-year-old and another boy were charged after allegedly using fake social media accounts to post inappropriate doctored images of school students and staff.

Both are charged with eight various counts of harassment and obscenity, four of which are felonies. One of the two then-eighth graders was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.

The accounts were shut down by Community Unit School District 200 officials in May and the first round of charges were brought against the two the same month.

Darrah confirmed a county judge ordered the evaluation as part of the ongoing case during the boy's court date Monday. He also confirmed the teen would be allowed to have his court-ordered GPS tracking ankle bracelet removed.
