Should a teen be charged with possesion, and distributing child pornography for sending a "sext" with a nude photo of themselves?

Should they be charged?
Also, should they be incarcerated and be registered as a sex offender?




Edit: there are now several judges that believe they should be.

No. I think that type of "crime" should not have a consequence that will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

Fuck no. They were being a dumb kid. That's a lot different than an adult taking pics of kids and sending them out to other pervs.

That's how I feel.

1. They themselves are a minor, which I'm court makes THEM a child as well.

And 2. A stupid teenaged decision to "sext" doesn't make them a sex offender or criminal IMO.

I don't know. I did tell my ds it was a crime though so he isn't sending out pics of his junk for the pervs to eventually find. I like that it can be used to scare kids out of sending naked pics.

No they should not.  In most cases both of the juveniles (receiver/sender) will end up with a lewdness charge, and not have to register.  But, there are so many over-charged sex cases that this doesn't surprise me in the least.

I know a guy who is now a registered sex offender, for having sex with his girl friend 2 days after he turned 18, and one week before she turned 18. he was charged with statutory rape by her parents.

Yup. Absolutely. Children need to know that it is not okay to be sending images of themselves because once they are sent you cant control where it ends up. They ARE distributing child porn.

Yes- this has become a huge matter with all the technology kids have at their hands. It's illegal to take or distribute nude photos of anyone under the age of 18. If a teen is doing it, absolutely, it's still illegal, and they have no way of knowing whose hands it will end up in.

Our son's school has ipads for all the students from 7-12th grade starting this year. They had a long parent meeting, in which the police came and gave a long lecture on taking inappropriate photos of yourself or others, and that you WILL be charged with distribution of child porn, which can mean jail time.
