Sadly, the DAs Office filed the wrong charges. These pictures are not child porn. "Virtual porn" using the head of a child, and the body of a nude adult is not child port according to the United States Supreme Court in the 2002 case of Ashcroft V. The Free Speech Coalition.
The New Hampshire Supreme Court held the same in State v. Zidel, and reserved the conviction a guy who did this same thing - as controlled by Ashcroft.
I agree ... and because they are using the wrong charges, this woman could possibly get off. Granted, they often will file trumped up charges in hopes that a plea will be made, but in this case she admitted to everything so this one will be interesting to watch in court.

Personally, I think it is a waste of money for prosecutors to use the wrong charges. It wastes the court's time. Sure she should pay for what she did, but use the right charges so they stick.

I've seen other cases where they file the wrong charges, the defendant wins and then the prosecutor files the charges that should have been made in the first place. Why pay a public defendant just because a prosecutor wants to grand-stand?

The article stated that she admitted to posting the flyers in the bathrooms, and it says also that it was due to a wrong she believed had been done to her daughter. So, that makes it not an assumption but shows that someone (not you) has the ability to read and comprehend.
Almost makes you wonder if the daughter did it to get back at this girl and the mother is saying she did it....

She needs some serious help. Her daughter deserves better, hopefully dad can take her.
The love of a parent is pretty strong.

Hopefully dad can give her some positive and new types of love that mom failed at.
