Sexting is sending or receiving sexually explicit text messages or images through a mobile device or computer. These messages can be words, images, video, or all of the above. As widespread use of mobile phones and other devices becomes popular, teens have received significant attention for sexting. The problem is that a teen, or anyone else, can get in major trouble for sexting.
Here’s how you can get in trouble by sexting:
- Child pornography: Having sexually explicit text messages of minors on a mobile device can lead to child pornography charges for creation, manufacturing, possession, and distribution. Even minors themselves can get charged.
- Exploitation of a minor: Sending sexually explicit or suggestive text messages to a minor can result in child sex abuse charges. Sexual activity itself does not necessarily have to occur.
Recently there have been several Maryland cases from the Court of Appeals did indicate that activity less than actual sexual contact can result in child sex abuse charges. Exploitation is usually the basis for these charges.
