You can still get charged with child pornography - even if you are still a minor.

Are they serious? It was herself that took the pics! I guess nobody owns your body except the government.

they had to be more then nude for that
it can't be child pornography unless it's sexual in nature
nude pictures however can get you an FCC fine but wouldn't happen unless the receiver complained

these charges will never stick, the prosecution will end up dropping the charges or at least reducing them to an FCC violation or obscene communication violation at most. any lawyer that has any intelligence can get the child pornography charges dropped

the law states that child pornogrpahy:
  • depicts a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct and is obscene, or
  • depicts an image that is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in graphic bestiality, sadistic or masochistic abuse, or sexual intercourse, including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital, or oral-anal, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex, and such depiction lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.2
so either the authorities are retarded or the pictures are more then nude


unless there's some local law in ohio that they are charging them for, but it's possible

in georgia you can become sex offender for skinny dipping or urinating in public

I think they have a beef with it cause she DISTRIBUTED them. If she had just kept them to herself I doubt there would be as much of an issue.

This thread sucks without pics...oh wait....

it doesn't matter if she distributed them, legally nude pictures of children are acceptable, otherwise a parent that takes a picture of their baby getting a bath and sends it to grandparents is also guilty of child pornography

shes an idiot for sending them out but other than it doesnt seem like it should be a big deal. the kids who received the pictures shouldnt be charged either. its not their fault someone sent them an image over the phone unless they can some how prove that they asked for it but even then this seems to be blown way out of proportion. waste of the courts time

How in the world can you charge people who received them? If they even bring those charges, Americans everywhere who see how ridiculous that is should boycott the decision by sending (adult) porn to the cell phone and email of the prosecutors who bring the preposterous charges. And I don't mean once or twice, ruin their normal channels of communication for being morons. Flood their mail at their house and office with pornographic items, toys, magazines, DVDs, etc.

Charging the girl is bad enough, but at least she is the one who broke the law. If it becomes a crime to own a cell phone and receive a picture from a 15 year old broad with a low self esteem, then dads across the country will have to cancel their entire family's cell phone plans to stay out of prison.

i believe the precedent case is from georgia where two teens filmed themselves in the act. one the guy now has to register as a sex offender after serving a decent jail term. i do not remember what the girl got out of it, i think nothing. it was consentual and both knew and agreed to the taping if memory serves.
but those considered under the age of majority are not considered informed enough to give consent to pretty much anything and whether they distribute it or not it's still kiddie porn to the fbi.

I'm pretty sure you're wrong. There's a big difference between a photo of a baby in a bathtub and spread eagle on a bear skin rug.

If the picture is meant for a sexual purpose it's child pornography.

the article states the pictures are only nude, not sexual in nature, maybe the reporter did not understand the difference

I am just going by the article, if they are sexually explicit she could be in big trouble

I would think that having the entire country know what a stupid whore you are is punishment enough.

I also don't see how a teen taking a nude photo of themselves can be anything BUT sexual in nature.

Really? This is the kind of **** that makes news now. Girl was 15. Believe it or not she knew what she was doing. Was it wise, no. But it also doesn't need to be a federal case either.
