Turning 19, Sex Crimes and Technology Article

Sexting, the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photographs primarily between mobile phones, is an unfortunate trend among today's youth. Sexting has confounded parents and provided new challenges to educators, law enforcement, and the courts. Because of child pornography, obscene material, and internet solicitation laws, the consequences of sexting can be both devastating and life-long.
