YOUTH SEXTING – Warn your kids.
“It’s so common now for kids to share pretty much everything but teens sending photos of naked teens can be considered to be distributing child pornography. Even a naked selfie can be considered production of child pornography. They can consent to the photos, but they’re still child porn. The law hasn’t quite caught up to smartphones. When the child pornography laws were made no one ever considered young people sharing images,” The result is mandatory minimum jail sentences and sex offender registration.
