Teens Who Sext Are Child Pornographers?

Increasingly, judges and lawmakers recognize that criminalizing every case, especially those involving common teenage behavior, might not be the best response.

Some states have passed sexting-specific statutes to lessen the penalties against minors engaged in sexting. For example, Texas has passed a law that will impose a misdemeanor on a minor’s first sexting offense. Under the statute, a minor may be sentenced to community supervision if he or she completes a state-sponsored sexting education course.

The State has to figure out a better way to deal with the issue.  The adult statutes applied to horny teenager kids (do you remember when you were 16?) is not working.   And; Parents, do a better job.
