What is this world coming to!! I am hearing there are very upseting pictures of highschool girls going around on facebook. As a parent and doing some research, this is pornogrophy (sexting)
FRANKFORT — Minors who use their cell phones or computers to send sexually explicit photos of themselves or other minors could face prosecution under a bill approved Wednesday by the House Judiciary Committee.
Teenagers who engage in "sexting" — sending and receiving nude photos via cell phones — could face a $100 fine or community service the first time they're caught. Juveniles who are charged with a second offense would be referred to the juvenile justice courts where offenders are typically sent to treatment, not jail.
Sexting — which many say is growing among Kentucky teens — is not addressed in Kentucky's criminal statutes. That means teens who have sent nude images of themselves or a third party are prosecuted too harshly or not at all, said Jason Reynolds, an attorney with the Department of Juvenile Justice."I think raising awareness is absolutely essential," said Tilley, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
"It is a situation that is out of control," he said. "It is a nightmare to some parents."
