    Kids Face Felony Sexting Charges - January 28, 2010



    JANUARY 28--A pair of Indiana middle school students are the latest minors to face felony charges for allegedly "sexting" naked photos to each other. The students--a 13-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy--were charged in connection with an incident last week at Ben Franklin Middle School in Valparaiso. The students are each facing felony child exploitation and possession of child pornography charges, according to the below police report. The case against the minors began last week when the girl had her cell phone confiscated after it rang during class. Crying, she told a teacher that "a 6th grade boy had sent her a dirty picture and she was going to get into trouble." A subsequent investigation determined that the boy had sent her a photo of his "exposed genitals" and that she had responded by texting him a shot of her "exposed body and breasts." The girl, the report notes, showed the explicit photo of the boy to a friend of hers, a seventh grade student at a local Catholic school. After conferring with prosecutors, the juveniles were charged with the two felony counts.


    I think the main question we need to ask ourselves in a situation such as this is... The hell is a 12 year old doing with a cellphone?

    You know, Law and Order:SVU did an episode that involved something similar. While I think that using child pornography laws is a bit too much, I think something needs to be done about child sending lewd photos of themselves to others. It's inappropriate, and if those photos end up on myspace, they are never going to be off the Internet. I don't think young children realize the permanence of things like that. My question is, why aren't the parents talking to their children about this sort of thing soon enough?

    We had a school wide program on sexting at my junior high school. It was mentioned that anyone having such pictures could be prosecuted for child porn, including children. This sort of thing will happen until we educate our children. Yes, parents aren't doing enough to both educate their children, and getting more involved in what they are doing with things such as cell phones, computers, and the like.

    This whole thing is just plainly retarded in any direction you look at it. The prosecution is retarded for trying to set up charges against children for "distributing" "child pornography", the parents are retarded for letting their kids have cell phones, the kids are retarded for taking pictures of themselves nude and sending them over an electronic device...*ANY* electronic device. It's just one great big clusterfuck all around!

    You would have thought that the incredible stupidity would have stopped after this incident:

    But I guess there's no shortage of idiot prosecutors out there running around doing idiot things. I think I'll try and find out the names of the prosecutor(s) in this latest case, see if I can't have lil fauxpic fun with them. LOL

    Again though, children and even teens do *NOT* need cell phones. And if you think your kid needs one for "emergency" situations...fine, get them a TRACFONE, which doesn't do anything *BUT* make phone calls. No texting, no pictures, no Internet, no bullshit...plus they're so gawd damn butt ugly and big that no kid would ever ~want~ to take it out in class for fear of embarrassment.

    I still think this is ridiculous. The whole point of child porn laws is to keep children safe from sexual exploitation. All that this will accomplish is to ruin there life for something that is, well, extremely juvenile (for lack of a better term).

    Just another case of the law not catching on to technology. The fact that those pictures exist at all should be punishment enough... As Dogboy said, if any of those pics make it to the internet they are there forever...

    I'm kind of curious as to see how far it'll make it through the court system...before being thrown out by a judge who takes one look at it and goes, "What the fuck?!"

    It'll be very much "face palm" worthy if it even manages to get past ONE judge and they actually have to start the appeals process. LOL

    Wow, really? "Child pornographers?" "Dangerous?"

    No, the correct term for these two is, "idiotic (pre)teens."

    What they did was illegal, yes. There's no doubt about that. But for God's sake, they're barely even teens! Cut them some slack!

    If they're convicted of these felony offenses, they're going to be ruined for the rest of their lives. These laws were made to protect kids, and now they're hurting them.

    Give them a harsh warning, and make sure they know not to do it again.

    Problem solved.
