    Let the parents deal with her, it's not something that needs to be addressed by the state judiciary. Our legal system is a joke, it definitely needs some serious reform.

    Also: Don't ask what I was Googling when I found this article

    :eek:

    Seriously, I found it on Stumble.

    Weird. So if I would have taken pictures of my jimmy when I was 16 or something and sent it to a female classmate, I could have been charged with child pornography.

    Interesting.

    Doesn't make much sense to me either. I mean, yes, you're distributing pornographic images of an underage subject, but it's yourself.

    And really, I bet the students who received it sure as hell didn't mind. Imagine being in high school and receiving that photo. I doubt you'd be thinking "OH NOEZ! TEH UNDERAGE BOOBZ!" You'd probably be thinking "HELL YEAH!".

    I guess by the letter of the law, it's correct, but it seems like overkill in a major way.

    This is just a bad slippery slope. I mean technically you could charger teens having sex with child pornography and a host of other sex crimes charges. This is ********.

    I think many sex offense laws in this country are misguided. Yes, actual child abusers and other types of harmful sex offenders are bad people and need to be punished. But so many people like this girl end up getting lumped with them under the letter of the law.

    When I was in high school/early college I dated this one girl for several years. She was two years younger than me. When I was 19 and she was 17, if someone saw some of the pictures I had of her I could have been arrested and forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of my life.

    This is just another example of zero tolerance getting out of line. Sex offenses need to be judged on a case by case basis using some common sense.

    When you hear the words "It's for the Children!" start checking your wallet .....and your constitutional rights.

    Well, in your case it would probably be tried in Small Claims Court...
