Yeah, I just watched a story on this a few months ago. A 20 yr old is a registered sex offender because he was dating someone when he was 18 I think and she was 17. She sent partially nude pictures to his phone and when they broke up he sent it to everyone in his contact list. So the court considered this distributing child pornography, and now hes a registered sex offender. You're not allowed to have naked pictures of underage people on your phone even if it happens to be someone you're dating. Did that answer your question? I can add more if I need too.

I seem to recall that in similar cases, the underage sender of nude photos could also have been considered offenders. Too many prosecutors seem to regard their office as stepping stones to higher office.

Do you think that was ok behaviour, whatever age she was?

Given she was underage, some sort of criminal charge seems entirely warranted.

If she had not been, I would hope that the arsehole would nonetheless have beeu guilty of something pretty serious.

No of course not, but I don't know what should have happened after that. I could really argue both sides of the story. I was just reiterating the story from what I saw, because some sexting does fit in the category child pornography.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey teenagers who text or post sexually explicit photos online could avoid prosecution under a measure that would give first-time offenders the chance to complete a diversionary program.

The state Attorney General's Office would create a program to teach teens about the criminal penalties and social consequences of sending or receiving nude or seminude images by cell phones or computers.

Some states charge teens with offenses such as distribution of child pornography.

County prosecutors would decide which children would be eligible, within guidelines.

Assemblywoman Pam Lampitt of Camden, the bill's sponsor, says the focus is teaching young people to change their behavior.


OK, I am glad that the charging of sexters under child porn laws is getting a re-look, but this is only a slight improvement. It figures though that DA'a are insisting that the law is the proper remedy for this alleged problem. It also figures that the feminist would get on board this train, as they are always sure that the law is the solution, no matter what the problem is.
