He is only 15 and probably never been allowed to look at girls in bikins for all you know. I say thts so stupid to charge a boy of a crime so mild yea the internet thing may have been over the top but seriously. I say that they should slap a few days of cummunity service to a womens camp or what ever so he will think better of women than just something to stare at.

Then, perhaps you are an exhibitionist or have looser parameters.

Al the mother of a 15 year old daughter, I would nail this kid to the wall.

From what I understand there were multitudes of girls/women being taped and exposed WITHOUT their permission...

Bottom line - THAT"S the issue - it's a breach of privacy.

It is VERY important for you, and others, to understand than passing this info over cell phones and the internet constitutes using lines of communications that are regulated - there is NO other way to prosecute this than as a sex crime...hence, permanent Sex Offender status.

Maybe you wouldn't care that your crotch was being broadcast all over the world but your lack of need for confidentiality is not relevant, nor safe.

It IS standard practice - this "sexting" - and, it's dangerous - whether you know it or not.

My guess is you are too young to know or understand in full the ramifications of this kind of behavior....and, the behavior to which it could lead, for the boy(s) involved.

Ban cell phones in High School ! Problem solved !
You guys are idoits, just cAuse some kid took some pics with his phone doesn't mean that you should ban cell phones from school. If the kid didn't have a cell phone he would have used a video camera. Cell phones aren't the problem

all of you people out there that are the typical 21st century "assholes" really disgust me. you try to make names for yourselves by causing other people even more problems than they need to have. i can guarantee you couldn't look at me with a straight face and say that you never looked up girls skirts when you were in high school. so what if he was doing it, the only problem is that he posted them over the internet (which he SHOULD get some sort of violation for). other than that, you have nothing to feel so innocent about when you call him a perv or a disgusting human being.

here we go, big guy saying he didn't have to when he was in high school...probably still living in high school. And if you read my article all the way through (without just skimming it to see if you caught any red flag words that would make you cry) i said that he should get into trouble for posting them on the web. All im saying is that this is getting entirely blown out of proportion. The kid is 15...I bet you did things when you were at that age that you regret, so why should this kid have to get the brunt of everything. I know personally that it took one run in with the police to set me straight. Lets face it, we were all young and stupid at one age or the other.

why should his family get sued for this? they had nothing to do with it. And dont tell me its a matter of upbringing because you and i both know that isnt the case. it should be him personally and noone else.

no i really dont regret anything i did. it made me into the person i am today. a hard working individual, with good friends and knowledge that i can pass down onto my children (if i choose to ever have any that is) so that they might not make the same choices i did. although my parents told me of their own stories and still made the choices on my own, so im sure if i had children they would do the same. i dont live in the past, no reason to do so. life is to short, you never know what you will miss if you spend to much time remembering the past.

Release the perv's info. He had no conscious about this; he will date rape a college girlfriend in the future...

...as a teacher, if this happened to me, I would see if I could sue/prosecute him as far as the law allowed. Luckily, I wear knickers that cover all, but it's the principle of the matter.

Cells are allowed but should not be on. We can take them if we even see them. Kids lose all privileges because they abuse all privileges.
Parents texting/calling doesn't help and school districts need to grow a pair and stand up against those idiotic parents who further escalate the problem.

I just want to point out the fact that I am a current student and I don't use my phone during the school day. I drive to school and have it on me in case of an emergency then I turn it off when I get there and don't turn it back on until after school. Every adult who makes a stereotypical comment about how kids don't just want their phones for an emergency is an idiot. I'm sorry but times have changed and what happens if you're in an accident on the way to school but you don't have a phone to let your parents know. I love how cell phones are a bad thing now? Some adults need to grow up. Just don't allow students to talk or text on their phones during the day. If a cell phone rings, you serve detention. Thats how my school does it...
